Assessment Cycle 2: Summative Assessment
Day 2: Quick publish assessments
Challenge: Set aside a period to administer a quick publish assessment at the end of your next unit of study. You might choose to write up the task on a sheet of paper, in addition to explaining your expectations to your students, so you can effectively communicate your expectations to all of your students. You might choose to discuss with them the important things you hope to see in students’ writing so they’re clear about the qualities of good writing they should demonstrate.
What did your students show you they understood about the genre of writing that the quick publish assessment covered?
Were there any holes in your teaching?
Can you fix these gaps by reteaching strategies to your students as a whole class or in small groups?
