Cornerstone 4: Summative evaluation of student evidence helps educators to involve students in the assessment process.

• Essential cornerstone because evaluation requires sufficient evidence that students have achieved the intended learning.•It is essential that evidence of learning be triangulated (collected from multiple sources and in multiple forms) and collected over time.•Looking at a greater range of student work (including both qualitative and quantitative evidence) as they learn to apply shared criteria can increase the validity of teachers’ judgments and limits the need for external evaluation.•Teachers work together and develop specific criteria.

Cornerstone 3: Motivation

Strategy: Involve the students in the assessment process by helping them develop a sense of ownership and commitment to their learning. Students will then be able to make choices about what to focus on next in their learning, they will become more engaged which in return will help decrease discipline problems. Using a student friendly rubric like the one below can help provide students with the necessary feedback to make improvements on future assessments.

Cornerstone 1: Formative Classroom Assessment

Cornerstone 2: Quality Feedback for Learning:

● Students learn and achieve at higher levels when they are involved in the process in which they will be accessed(Davies, 31). ○Example: Have students create a rubric for the assignment. Teacher will then use the student’s rubric and the teacher’s own rubric to access the assignment. ●Formative Assessments impact learning instead of merely measuring what was learned(Davies, 32). Strategy 1:Define Learning Destination● Learning target is clear and defined(Davies, 37).●Teachers summarize standard and learning target to students in a simple language that students are able to understand(Davies, 37).●Knowing the learning target gives students a sense of ownership in their learning(Davies, 37).

Two general categories:•Specific, Descriptive Feedback•Descriptive feedback is generally in the form of direct comments on student work, rubrics which can be developed with student input, or both. This criteria can be presented in the form of a performance standard template or rubric, and should be written in student-friendly language. It should be given in a positive tone, to help identify what was done well and the needs for improvements are.•Evaluative FeedbackIt is one of the most powerful classroom interventions that teachers use to foster learning and improve student’s motivation. Evaluative feedback is referred by letters, numbers and other symbols.
