  1. 1. ASSESSMENT THE TSRS WAY Mark Parkinson, Director The Shri Ram Schools Friday 15th July 2011
  2. 2. What did we want ? <ul><li>The assessments to reflect process & content </li></ul><ul><li>Engage students in holistic tasks – meaningful, in-depth learning </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers as facilitators </li></ul><ul><li>Provide diagnostic feedback </li></ul><ul><li>Give students feedback on how well they understand the information </li></ul><ul><li>and on what they need to improve. </li></ul><ul><li>Student involvement – rubrics, self evaluation, goal setting </li></ul>
  3. 3. Emphasis on Formative Assessment Formative assessment is a reflective process that intends to promote student attainment . Cowie and Bell define it as the bidirectional process between teacher and student to enhance, recognize and respond to the learning. Black and Wiliam consider an assessment ‘formative’ when the feedback from learning activities is actually used to adapt the teaching to meet the learner's needs. Definition
  4. 4. Effects of feeding back marks and comments Feedback Gain Interest marks none top positive bottom negative comments 30% all positive marks plus none top positive comments bottom negative (Butler 1988)
  5. 5. Bidirectional Teacher feedback forms Exit tickets One minute paper Concept mapping Student rubrics
  6. 6. Student Rubric Level Understanding Strategies, Reasoning, Procedures Communication Makes an effort but lacks understanding. <ul><li>I did not understand problem. </li></ul><ul><li>I was not sure how to do it. </li></ul><ul><li>I have no explanation. </li></ul><ul><li>I am not sure how to draw the problem. </li></ul>OK, good try. Unclear. <ul><li>I got started. I have part of the problem. </li></ul><ul><li>I am still thinking. </li></ul><ul><li>It would help me to work with somebody. </li></ul><ul><li>My answer doesn't look right to me. </li></ul><ul><li>I can explain some of what I did. </li></ul><ul><li>I tried to use pictures, numbers, graphs and words. </li></ul>Very good. Clear, strong. <ul><li>I understood the problem, including all of the math required to solve it. </li></ul><ul><li>I have the right answer. </li></ul><ul><li>I used a plan to solve the problem. </li></ul><ul><li>I can tell you or show you how I got the answer. </li></ul><ul><li>I used mathematical terms, pictures, graphs, numbers and words to tell you how I solved the problem </li></ul>Wow! Awesome! Excellent! <ul><li>I got it. </li></ul><ul><li>I used important math ideas to solve the problem. </li></ul><ul><li>I have the right answer. </li></ul><ul><li>I had a very efficient way of solving the problem. </li></ul><ul><li>I checked to make sure my answer was right. </li></ul><ul><li>I showed you some other ways that you can use this same plan to solve new problems, or I made a connection to another problem. </li></ul><ul><li>I showed you how I know my answer is right step by step. </li></ul><ul><li>I clearly used words, pictures, numbers, graphs and/or models to show my solution and mathematical thinking. </li></ul>

  13. 13. CCE – Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation Formative Assessment Bidirectional or unidirectional Where is the constant feedback mechanism, both for the student and teacher ? Use of rubrics Done or not? Before the assignment to make the student aware of the expectations of the teacher? 40% weightage to formative assessment in the year Once we assign a grade, can we still call it formative assessment?
