Developing Measures

The Best Choice .... according to the experts

RMC Corporation (2002) – Good assessments must:

  1. be aligned with specific standards and learning targets;
  2. affect what is important for students to know and be able to do;
  3. be aligned with instruction;
  4. have appropriate rubrics or scoring criteria attached that already distinguish between levels of performance

 

Rationale

You want your assessment to

  1. Measure student achievement of objectives
  2. Measure what you teach
  3. Measure what you expect students to learn
  4. Communicate clearly what learning is expected
