Title: Classroom Assessment FOR Learning

Classroom Assessment FOR Learning
  • Focus for Today
  • Key 2 Clear Targets

Todays Training Goals
  • Every Teacher Will
  • Know the 4 types of learning targets
  • Understand each target type
  • Be able to unpack an objective or standard with
    competence and confidence
  • Begin to consider how this knowledge of learning
    targets applies to your lesson objectives, PDSA
    goals, classroom instructional strategies and

Kinds of Achievement Targets
  • Knowledge Master factual and procedural
  • Reason Use knowledge to reason and solve
  • Performance Demonstrate mastery of specific
    performance skills
  • Product Create quality products
  • (See handout for verbs to go with each type of

Knowledge Targets
  • What students need to
  • Know
  • Be able to do
  • Be able to locate
  • Know outright vs. know via reference
  • Often stated in verbs knows, lists, names,
    identifies, and recalls

Reasoning Targets
  • Make up majority of learning targets
  • Thinking proficienciesusing knowledge to
  • Solve a problem
  • Make a decision
  • Plan
  • Represent mental processes such as
  • Predicts, infers, classifies, hypothesizes
  • Compares, concludes, summarizes
  • Analyzes, evaluates, generalizes

Performance Targets
  • Fewest of learning targets
  • Must be demonstrated and observed (heard or seen)
    to be assessed
  • Examples include
  • Oral fluency in reading
  • Playing a musical instrument
  • Demonstrating movement skill in dance
  • Serving a volleyball

Product Targets
  • The standard calls for student to create a
  • The product isnt a medium to show the learning
    (ex. a culminating project/activity) the product
    IS the learning
  • Found more often in the arts
  • Examples
  • Notating music
  • Using desktop publishing software to create a
    variety of publications
  • Creating a scatterplot to display data
  • Creating a personal wellness plan

Knowledge Knowledge
We Need Clear Targets To
  • Know if the assessment adequately covers what we
  • Correctly identify what students know and dont
  • Have students self-assess or set goals for future
    study that are likely to help them learn more
  • Keep track of student learning target by target
    or standard by standard
  • Complete a standards-based report card

Activity Identify target types
  • Instructions
  • Pair up with someone beside you.
  • Choose two/three of the objectives on the
    sentence strips.
  • Determine which type of learning target is
    represented by the objective (use the chart
    provided to assist you)
  • Post the sentences on the board in the correct
    spot on the grid.

Unpacking/deconstructing standards
  • Takes the broad and/or unclear
    standard, goal, or benchmark
    makes it
  • Smaller
  • Clearer
  • More understandable to students AND teacher.
  • Unpacking outcomes
  • Will know the standard type (knowledge,
    reasoning, skill or product)
  • Indentify its underpinning learning targets
  • Create student-friendly I Can statements

Lets practice
  • Creating targets for
  • Driving a Car with Skill
  • What knowledge will students need to know to
    demonstrate intended learning?
  • What patterns of reasoning will they need to
  • What skills are required, if any?
  • What product development capabilities must they
    acquire, if any?

Driving a Car with Skill
  • Knowledge
  • Know the law
  • Read signs and understand what they mean
  • Reasoning
  • Evaluate am I safe and synthesize info. to take
    action if needed
  • Skills
  • Steering, signaling, parallel parking, . . .
  • Product
  • (not appropriate target)

it right-using it well. Portland, OR ETS
Assessment Training Institute.
Now Put It In Kid-Friendly Language
  • I can explain the rules of the road-speed limits,
    stopping, right-of-way, when to signal.
  • I can describe what different parts of the car do
    (steering wheel, lights, brakes, gas pedal)
  • I can evaluate common road situations and
    determine the appropriate action to take.
  • I can steer a car in the direction I want.
  • I can signal properly.
  • I can keep the car in the appropriate lane.
  • I can parallel park without hitting anything.

Unpacking an Objective
  • Work with a partner.
  • Choose one of the objectives on from the target
    identity activity on the board. (hint choose
    either your subject area or one you know
    something about.)
  • Use the worksheet provided for deconstructing
    (unpacking) standards to break the objective down
    into its component learning targets.

Lets try it together
  • Objective Understands the binomial theorem.
  • Objective Compare and contrast democracies with
    other forms of government.

Lets chat
  • How does the knowledge from todays training
    help us develop more informative CFAs based on
    our lesson objectives and PDSA goals?

Next steps Making it Meaningful to YOU
  • Use the Unpacking Standards sheet to deconstruct
    the learning target on your current classroom or
  • What kind of target is it?
  • Brainstorm with your PLC members different kinds
    of LEARNING STRATEGIES you could use to teach the
  • Brainstorm ways to assess the target based on the
    type of target (we will practice more in the next
    CASL session)

Next steps (contd)
  • In your PLCs begin each meeting by having each
    person share his/her unpacked classroom PDSA
  • Begin thinking of how your next CFAs might look
    based on the targets youve committed to

Thats All Folks!
  • Thank you for your participation and attention.
