Assessing Student Learning (Rubrics)


From: WEdTechTeacher.   Teachers who integrate technology into student activities and projects often ask us, “How do I grade it?”

Formative vs. Summative Assessment
Performance is most often analyzed through formative and summative assessment. Formative assessment is ongoing and provides information needed to adjust teaching and learning for a more effective outcome. It helps monitor student progress throughout an activity and gauge student understanding and readiness to proceed to further tasks. Alternately, summative assessment focuses on a particular point in time, such as a test at the end of a unit or grading term. Regardless of whether the immediate assessment is formative or summative, a teacher needs to distinguish between the tool’s capabilities and the student’s performance using it. To illustrate, anyone can quickly produce a visually stunning and captivating video presentation using iMovie, which has built-in easy-to-use professional effects. Therefore, to assess a movie presentation effectively, the teacher needs evidence of the thinking that went into creating the movie. Rather than grade the end product, educators must focus on the process — research, writing, image selection, etc. This allows teachers to focus on learning throughout the project rather than the flashy, finished product.
