Student Assessment Mini-Lessons for Your Staff.
Arter, Judy; Nutting, Bill
This set of mini-lessons contains staff meeting activities to help a school's staff understand large-scale standards-based assessment and promote student achievement through improved classroom assessment practice. These lessons contain a clear statement of what teachers need to know and be able to do with respect to student assessment. They include a version of content standards for teachers. They also present performance criteria (rubrics) for assessing the quality of classroom assessments based on the content standards, and sample assessments scored using the rubrics with explanations of the scores. Teacher self-assessment development continua are presented so that teachers can evaluate their own strengths and learning needs. The lessons also contain training activities principals can use in staff meetings to develop teacher assessment knowledge and skills. The 17 mini-lessons are supplemented by 4 appendixes that contain overheads and handouts, sample assessments, references and resources, and the self-assessment development continua.
