Effective Student Assessment and Evaluation in the Classroom: Knowledge + Skills + Attributes
Rogers, Todd; Swanson, Mark
Online Submission
The purpose of "Effective Student Assessment and Evaluation in the Classroom: Knowledge + Skills + Attributes" is to more clearly articulate the student assessment knowledge, skills and attributes expected under the Teaching Quality Standard Ministerial Order of applicants for Alberta interim professional teacher certification. The document aims to: serve as a statement of the repertoire of student assessment principles and core knowledge, skills and attributes that all Alberta teacher preparation institutions, each in their unique manner, are expected to provide to their graduates; inform prospective employers about the student assessment principles and core knowledge, skills and attributes they may reasonably expect of recent Alberta, Bachelor of Education graduates as they begin their teaching careers; provide a summary of the core student assessment principles, knowledge and skills which teachers, school authorities, professional development providers and others may use when planning and developing professional growth opportunities for beginning and other teachers; and provide a foundation for more in-depth information gathering and research about ways that Alberta teacher professional development institutions and professional development providers may further enhance the quality of teaching in Alberta by strengthening education graduates' student assessment competencies. The document presents a snapshot of current, sound student assessment practices. The Expert Committee's final draft was reviewed by 32 attendees at the 2005 Colloquium on Student Assessment (Colloquium) that included representatives of Alberta teacher preparation programs, the Alberta Assessment Consortium, the College of Alberta School Superintendents (CASS), the Alberta Teachers' Association (ATA) and Alberta Education. A list of resources and references is included. (Contains 1 figure.) [This document was published by Alberta Education.]
