Tip on planning Assessment for next school year

May 23, 2012

This is a good time of the year to start planning for next year. If possible, have your math department take some time this week to talk about the following questions about assessment. Assessment decisions are mostly site based. While CPM provides you with an assortment of assessment resources (see Teacher Edition), each school should develop some common assessment practices that represent the consensus of the Mathematics Department.

The following questions are offered to start your local conversation:

  1. Why do we assess students
  2. What methods do we currently use to assess student understanding?
  3. What is the purpose of each of these types of assessment (formative, benchmark, summative, individual, team)?
  4. What would our assessment look like if we could start from scratch and build our assessment resources?
  5. What common assessments do we need to have as a department and what can be left up to each individual teacher?
