Assessment Methods

The next step for determining appropriate classroom assessment is to match the type of instructional learning target to the type of assessment that would most accurately and effectively measure what is intended to be taught.

Key Point:  “The accuracy of any classroom assessment depends on selecting the appropriate assessment method that matches the achievement target to be assessed.  Acceptable matches result in accurate information gathered as efficiently as possible. Mismatches occur when the assessment method is not capable of yielding accurate information about the learning target” (Chappuis et al. 2012).
