Transcript of Curriculum based assessment

Construction - response assessment
Also called subjective assessment. This type of assessment students must recall or construct answer to a question.

This type of assessment could be basically any type of testing except objective quizzes. Examples include: Essays, projects, and short answer tests.
These type of tests usually take higher level of thinking.

Universal Design
Most my information about universal came from this site
Universal design is a design approach.
There are seven principles of Universal Design.
1. Equitable Use: does not disadvantage or stigmatize any group
of users
2. Flexibility in Use: accommodates a wide range of individual
preferences and abilities
3. Simple, Intuitive Use: Use of design is easy to understand,
regardless of the user's experience, knowledge, language skills, or
current concentration level
4. Perceptible Information: The design communicates necessary
information effectively to the user, regardless of ambient conditions
or the user's sensory abilities
5. Tolerance for Error:minimizes hazards and the consequences of accidental unintended actions
6. Low Physical Effort: the design can be used efficiently and
comfortably, and with a minimum of fatigue.
7. Size and Space for Approach and Use: appropriate size and space is provided for approach, reach, manipulation, and use, regardless
of the user's body size, posture, or mobility
Construct Response assessment vs. selected response assessment
Constructed response assessment is - A type of question that requires the respondent to compose an answer rather than select from a list of choices.
Examples of this type of assessment include: essay questions, short answer
Selected response assessment- a type of question that requires an answer that you select from list of choices. This include: multiple choice tests, matching, true or false and any other assessment thatrequires picking form options
Depending on the information being taught both types of assessments can be useful.
For this class that I am doing this project in we have both types of assessment each week. Doing projects like this would be the constructed response assessment, and taking weekly multiple choice quiz would be selected response assessment.
Constructed Response assessment
does not test how well you can memorize information instead measures how well you know the information
Allows students to be creative
Might forces students to make an opinion and maybe apply the information t real life situations.

Harder for teachers to grade
maybe hard for educators and students to see if they learned the information they were suppose to learn.
Might not be the type of assessment to measure certain things accurately
example taking a math test and having students right an essay on how they came up with there answer would not be the best way of seeing if the student learned the information
Selected Response Assessment
shows if students learned the information in an easy to read way.
simple way to test students

students might just memorize information before test then forget it right after test is over,
does not allow students to be creative
might not accurately show what the student actually learned through the unit
This video gives a good reminder that assessments should measure what the student has learned at the end. Not how hard it was for him or her at the beginning of the lesson. This video is very relevant to educators. We often average a grade on a unit from what the student knew at the beginning of the unit and average it throughout the unit. If a student fails a homework assignment, but then aces that part in the test at the end of the unit then I do not think the homework grade should be included in his or her grade. The student learned the information just took more time for him or her to have a complete understanding
Informal Assessment vs. Formal assessment
*Disclaimer this video makes a good point and helped me understand informal vs. formal assessment, but it does have a curse word.
Informal assessments would be assessments such as portfolio's, small group work, discussions, games, and activities

Formal assessment would include work pags, fill in the correct answer, matching, multiple choice, and many other types of assessment similar. The standardized test and ACT and other tests are formal assessments
This image gives a great comparison of formal education vs. informal education.
