Quest 10 Component 1F

Questions, Understanding, & Explore

Quest Overview

  • In this quest, you will learn about Danielson component 1F and using digital worksheets.
  • You will read about the Danielson component 1F (understanding what it is, why it is important, what the elements are embedded within the component, and ways you can show it in your digital portfolio).
  • You will also learn the options available to you to create a digital worksheet using technology.
  • The first explore part of this quest you will complete a write up for Component 1F in your digital portfolio. To document your learning, you will take a screenshot of your write up in your digital portfolio and upload it to My GCC.
  • The second explore part of the quest is to watch the tutorial video about the different technology choices that you have to create a digital worksheet.
  • You must sign up for a teacher account using one of the tools you would like to explore. In class, we will be designing a digital worksheet for our virtual cooperating teacher.
  • Contact your virtual cooperating teacher and ask him/her about what topic you can create a digital worksheet for their class about.
  • This Quest should take you about two hours to complete.


The guiding questions for this quest include:

  • What is component 1F?
  • Why is it important?
  • What are the elements associated with component 1F?
  • What are the artifacts you can create to demonstrate competency in component 1F in your digital portfolio?
  • What types of technology can I use to create a digital worksheet?

Understanding Component 1F - Designing student assessment

What is component 1F?

  • Component 1F is focused upon designing assessment for our students.
  • This component will explore types of assessment (summative and formative) along with the importance of rubrics.
  • It also involves using assessment of and for learning. Assessments must also be able to meet the needs of all students through adaptation.
  • Component 1F is all about designing assessment for ALL of our students. This component discusses the importance of both formative and summative assessment techniques.

Why do we need to know about Component 1F?

Component 1F is important because teachers must:
  • Understand the difference & importance of assessment for and of learning.
  • Assessments of learning ensures that students have understood the intended learning outcomes.
  • Assessment for learning shows that the teacher was able to incorporate assessment during the lesson, and in turn able to adapt the lesson when needed.
  • These assessment techniques must be use by the teacher and student (for self-evaluation)

What are the elements within component 1F?

Congruence with instructional outcomes

  • Assessment must be connected to learning outcomes, which are connected to state standards and curricular guides.
  • In addition, assessment techniques have been adapted for ALL learners when necessary.

Criteria and standards

  • The instructor clearly defines expectations for students.
  • When appropriate, students contribute to the criteria.

Design of formative assessment

  • Assessments for learning are planned purposefully during the lesson.
  • The teacher uses the assessment data to inform decision making in the classroom.

Use for planning

  • The results of assessments is used by the teacher to inform practice.

Possible artifacts

Artifacts for component 1F could include the following:
  • Formative & summative assessments that are linked to learning outcomes and state


  • Technology tools used for formative assessment
  • Rubrics used to evaluate student work
  • Assessments with feedback (video, voice, or written feedback).


  • Open your component 1F page in your digital portfolio
  • Upload a screenshot of your digital portfolio component 1F with write up to My GCC.
  • Be sure to publish your website!
  • Complete a write up on your component 1F page that describes in your words and citing Danielson to the following questions:

  1. What is component 1F?
  2. Why do you need it?
  3. What are the elements?
  4. What are some artifacts you can use to show competency with component 1F?
  • Try to be original here don't just write down my ideas. Include materials that you may have from other classes.
