A Blueprint for Designing Incredible Standards-Aligned Classroom Assessments

The most important outcomes contained in academic standards (such as Common Core, TEKS, etc.) cannot be appropriately assessed using multiple-choice test items—this requires more robust performance measures. In Core Learning: Assessing What Matters Most, author Jay McTighe offers readers a framework for designing standards-aligned classroom assessment tasks that engage students in demonstrating their learning in authentic ways.

For administrators:

Train your teachers to create classroom assessments that improve learning, accurately measure student mastery of state-based standards (Common Core, TEKS, etc.), and put your school on the path to standards implementation success:

  • Improve standards implementation by turning assessments into learning experiences.
  • Get an accurate picture of how well state standards implementation is going in your school or district.
  • Identify the student and teacher needs and areas for improvement in standards implementation—then create interventions to help spur improvement.

For teachers:

Learn to create classroom assessments that improve learning and measure student mastery of standards by breaking out of the multiple-choice paradigm:

  • Build around performance tasks, not rote memorization.
  • Design assessments that engage students, and improve learning outcomes every step of the way.
