For this written assignment, you will submit an assessment activity that includes technology and applies to your content area. This written assignment should focus on an analysis of your technology-focused assessment activity in terms of best practices for using technology to assess student learning (this information can be found in the various website and article links provided within this module). In addition, based on the readings in this module, please provide a few strategies or ideas for how you can increase your use of technology in assessing student learning.
Please make sure you are not just talking about a technology based activity that you have done in your classroom. This has to be a technology based assessment tool.
This 3-4 page written assignment/reflection should include a title page and references (which don’t count as part of the total page expectations). Your paper should be double spaced, 12 point font, and in APA format.
Performance tasks add rigor and vitality to curriculum and assessment. As culminating tasks, they bring focus to multiple goals and important skills for students. Teachers, other school colleagues, and students must carefully plan and document student work. It is essential that students are given consistent, coherent, and careful feedback. In addition, it’s important for teachers to understand effective ways to determine what the tasks are telling them. A brief overview on simple analysis will help support you as you learn to analyze the assessments that you give in your own classroom. Performance tasks should be directly aligned with the objectives they’re intended to measure.
