6.1 Discussion: Formative Assessment & Teacher Feedback
- Read the blog post Web 2.0 Use May not be Formative Assessment by Harry Tuttle. Pay close attention to his feedback stages.
- Refer to the article, Formative Assessment & Monitoring Student Progress from The Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
- In your discussion post, identify a Web 2.0 tool you will use as a formative assessment to evaluate student learning, and describe how you would use it to meet learning objectives. Please be sure to reference the relevant Tuttle's stages to enhance your response.
6.2 Portfolio Assignment: Designing A Comprehensive Assessment Plan
Develop a comprehensive assessment plan for a relevant unit in a course you may teach online or blended using a variety of Web 2.0 tools, LMS tools, self-evaluation tools, peer evaluation tools, etc.
Part 1: The Unit
Provide a detailed overview of the unit that includes a description of your:
- standards (including Common Core)
Part 2: The Assessment Plan
- Identify three (3) formative assessments. Considering the tools you read about on page 2 and 3, identify at least 3 formative assessments you would utilize and explain how each would measure progress toward mastery. You need to use a different tool for each formative assessment and at least one should include a Web 2.0 tool.
- Feedback Methods. Explain how you would provide feedback using three different methods which also includes what you expect the students will do with the feedback. Please be sure to reference the relevant Tuttle's stage for the feedback you provide.
Part 3: The Summative Assessment
- Summative Project. Describe the summative project that the students will complete for this unit. Design a rubric for this Summative Project. It should have at least 3 levels and 3 or more criteria to evaluate the specific activities found in the project.
- Student Work Sample. Include at least one student work example/ sample of the summative project. This may be a sample that you create posing as a student if you don't currently have students.

6.3 Reflection: Technology and Assessment
This module has explored the use of technology tools for both formative and summative assessment. Write a post responding to the following:
- As you think about how you will implement formative and summative assessments in the online and blended environments, what are some of the factors you need to consider?
- Reflecting on your work in this module, how has it strengthened your skills in one or more of the Blended Learning Teacher Competencies? Specifically cite the Domain(s), Competency(ies) and Standard(s). OR: Reflecting on your work in this module, how has it strengthened your skills in one or more of the iNACOL Standards for Quality Online Teaching? Specifically cite the Standard(s) and Teacher Abilities. Reminder: You are to choose ONE focus of reflection for this course, blended learning OR online learning, and maintain this focus throughout the course in your reflection responses.
All reflection assignments should show a thoughtful consideration of the topic. Reflections are expected to be written in standard English, and are typically 300-500 words in length. Reflections may include hyperlinks to outside resources, embedded Web 2.0 tools from this course, and/or properly cited images.
