Assessment and Evaluation Guidelines. (Web Sighting)


Holzberg, Carol S., Technology & Learning


Assessment rubrics listing benchmarks for student achievement assist teachers by providing objective guidelines to measure and evaluate learning. These rubrics also improve learning because students who understand them before a project is due can take the evaluation criteria into account as they complete their work. Visit the following Web sites for assessment tips and tools and for help in developing, adapting, or adopting assessments that detail what you expect students to learn and evaluate what they have mastered for any given lesson.

* RubiStar (rubistar.4teachers.org) Learn how to create rubrics that measure student performance in project-based learning activities. Customizable rubrics for written reports, multimedia projects, oral presentations, and science activities assist teachers who don't have time to develop their own evaluation criteria. A special tool allows you to enter evaluation data into RubiStar after project completion and determine which skills students found difficult.

* Rubric to Assess a Project-Based Learning Activity www.idecorp.com/assessrubric.pdf) This downloadable PDF file serves as a ready-made rubric providing assessment criteria to measure levels of performance (Novice, Apprentice, Practitioner, and Expert) for a project-based task. The curriculum area is up to you, but evaluation criteria include task authenticity, content and presentation, creativity, and level of student interest.

Assessment: Creating Rubrics (www.teachervision.com/lesson-plans/lesson-4521.html) Explore this five-part series to learn how one teacher uses rubrics to motivate students and foster critical thinking. Articles focus on the advantages of rubrics, rubric design and types, how to weight evaluation criteria, and how to elicit student input in the assessment and evaluation process.

* Classroom Assessment Techniques (www.indiana.edu/~teaching/sfcats.html) This Web site provides both individual and collaborative activities for classroom assessment. The suggested in-class assessment methods can serve as alternatives to traditional standardized, multiple-choice, and paper-and-pencil evaluation techniques.

* Assessment Strategies and Definitions (www. rmcdenver.com/useguide/assessme/definiti.htm) Here you'll find guidelines to help you develop different types of assessments and communicate performance expectations. By applying standardized ways to identify areas of knowledge and skills that students have mastered and those that need more work, you can easily hone your teaching skills.
