5.1   The teacher plans and prepares appropriate assessment activities.

  • Makes evaluation methods clear and purposeful.
  • Prepares evaluation instruments which reflect course content.
  • Maintains an accurate and up to date record of student progress.
  • Evaluates student progress regularly.
  • Collects, analyzes and reports data to identify areas of strengths and weaknesses.
  • Gives correction which is constructive; reinforcement which is appropriate.
  • Uses a variety of assessment strategies to evaluate student progress (formative and  summative).
  • Provides consistent and timely feedback to promote student learning.
  • Implements strategies to meet the diverse needs of all students.
  • Uses data to inform instruction and programming


Throughout this year, I have shown this by:

  • Creating and planning regular activities for learning and assessment
  • Creating and adapting critical challenges for student engagements
  • Using inquiry process that leads to feedback and reflection through out the process to lead to continuous growth.
  • Multi-step assignments that allow for students to modify and build upon their knowledge and understanding
  • Assignments designed to be as challenging or as simplified as students want/need
  • Formative, hands on assignments designed to lead to summative projects
  • Feedback and reflections given with area of strength, area of growth and strategies for improvement – personalized to each student’s instructional levels.
  • Leveled groupings for stations for learning.
