When planning for a lesson, it is important for teachers to include how they plan to monitor student understanding as they move through the lesson. Being able to quickly determine if students are ready to continue with learning or need more support is a critical teaching skill that depends on constant monitoring and formative assessment throughout the lesson/unit. Most teachers have multiple formative assessment activities they can adapt to any lesson content to check for understanding.
For this assignment, select a grade level K-3 and a state standard.
Use the “Assessment Types” template to list three learning objectives aligned to the state standard you selected. Keep in mind, learning objectives are designed to identify what the teacher intends to measure during learning. These must be aligned with the standard. When creating objectives, an educator must consider who the audience is, what action verb will be measured, and what tools will be used to meet the learning.
Once you have finalized the objectives and they align to the standard, create two formative assessment strategies, and one summative assessment strategy for each learning objective aligned to the state standard. At least one of the formative assessment strategies should include the use of technology and provide immediate guided feedback for the student on his or her learning.
In a 250-500 word reflection, justify and evaluate how the assessment strategies developed will check for understanding and measure learning success during instruction to support instructional planning and practices in the growth and development of young children.
APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
