Assessment for Learning

The key strategies for assessment from the video are clarifying, understanding, and sharing learning intention; engineering effective classroom discussions, tasks, and activities that elicit evidence of learning; providing feedback that moves learners forward; activating students as learning resources for one another; and activating students as owners of their own learning. (Rystad, 2013)

Assessment for Learning

I believe that formative assessment will give me the opportunity to observe the students to see what they have learned. I can do this by conversing with the student. I can ask questions and see what the response is going to be. I will know whether the student has grasped what I am trying to teach and it will give me the opportunity to see what area I need to work on if the student do not understand the lessons.

I believe that summative assessment can be used to see what the student has learned at the end of the lesson by comparing it to what they knew in the beginning of class. I would use this assessment as secondary because I believe that I can learn more about the student from formative assessment and I can do this throughout the semester. I feel I need to know before the end of the lesson where the student stands, in other words, what they have learned. Do not get me wrong this can be a good way to assess what they have learned compared to what they knew from the beginning.

Formative and summative assessment can be used in the classroom to see what the student is learning and what the student has learned. Both of the assessment will help the teacher in order to help the students in their care to improve their grades. Formative can be used during the lessons and summative can be used at the end of the lesson. Both assessments will help the teacher to see what need to be done in order to help the students improve

•An example of formative assessment is to ask the student a question and wait for an answer from the student. According to Rystad (2013) It is not so important that the answer is correct, but that the student is trying their best. The students are responding to the teacher and the teacher know whether they need to try another strategy to help the students to learn.

•An example of summative assessment is when the students take their nine weeks exam and the teacher see what areas they have improved in or they need help in understanding what need to be done.
