Lois identifies five perspectives on assessment to think about when designing your own assessments:
- Monitoring: You'll want to keep track of your students' learning experiences through checklists, inventories and class lists. Your students can also account for their learning day through journal entries, self-reflective narratives, and tracking sheets.
- Observing: Valuable information can be gained about each student just by observing and listening. What to record and techniques for recording the information are suggested.
- Interacting: You'll learn successful techniques to interact with your students, to listen and to ask questions that nudge them toward examination of their own thinking.
- Analyzing: The fourth assessment perspective centers on collecting and analyzing the artifacts of your students' learning.
- Reporting: You will get help in organizing the assessment data you collect to share with parents, administrators, and others beyond the classroom door.
As you continuously evaluate and monitor your students' learning using a variety of assessment tools, you can design instruction and create curriculum that will stretch your students' knowledge and expand their learning worlds.
