Defending our Assessment Practices

Students are the main focus when it come to assessments.

Assessment

Assessments are used to help teachers guide their students and to improve the quality of their lessons. Assessments are also used to show accountability to the teachers. Assessments show teachers how their students are learning. Assessments should reflect good instruction, happen everyday during instruction, and should provide data about the student progress. The data from the assessment should be used to make sure the student is successful. Assessments are needed for effective teaching and a quality learning environment. (Lopez, 2013). Students should be involved with the assessment process.
