4.4.b Use Digital Tools to Create Effective Assessments

4.4.b Help educators use digital tools to create effective assessments that provide timely feedback and support personalized learning.

In my post, Reflect and Redesign by Using the Understanding by Design Model, I focused on using the Understanding by Design Model to determine the outcome of the activity or the learning objective that students will master. I have learned that it is an effective way to create an assessment and measure student learning outcomes.  

In addition to an effective framework, digital tools are now being used widely in classrooms to create assessments, provide feedback, and personalized support. In my community project, co-planning a lesson with a teacher partner, I helped my partner utilize the feature of OneNote for students to demonstrate their writing in a Dual Language literacy class and provide immediate feedback. As a result of this learning experience, my partner created a class page in her class OneNote notebook and individual student pages for each student. Students could share their draft writing; the teacher could provide personalized feedback during the editing process and assess their final draft based on a differentiated rubric to meet students’ language proficiency needs.
