Allocate at least 1 hour in the field to support this field experience.
For this field experience, you will assess students, provide them feedback, and reflect on the summative assessment implementation.
Part 1: Assessment
In the previous field experience, you designed and implemented a lesson that provided additional learning support to the selected group of students. In the final part of the assessment process, you will conduct a summative assessment for the same group of students.
Your summative assessment should be designed to determine mastery of identified standards. Prior to completing the assessment, review the pre-assessment to ensure appropriate concepts are measured in the final assessment. Once your summative assessment is complete, ask your mentor teacher to review it for approval.
Administer the assessment to the group of students. You may provide multiple assessment methods (oral, written, technology driven, etc.), and differentiate assessment based on the needs of the students.
Part 2: Provide Feedback
Individually review each student’s assessment results with him or her. During each conference, ask the following questions to engage the student:
- How do you feel about the lesson?
- What was most difficult?
- What was easy?
During this time, provide effective, descriptive feedback that starts with a positive strength of each student and ends with identifying instructional goals for the student to continue working on.
Part 3: Reflection
Submit a 250-500 word reflection of your experience creating a summative assessment, implementing it, and providing feedback. Did the data you collected in the pre-assessment help you prepare an applicable summative assessment? What challenges did you run into during the summative assessment and how did you deal with them? Explain how you will use this process in your future professional practice.
Submit a description or copy of your assessment, along with a 250-500 word reflection on giving instructional feedback to the students, as one deliverable.
