TITLE
Assessment in Math and Science: What's the Point Workshop #2 - What’d I Get? (Scoring Tools)

CLIP DESCRIPTION
A high school teacher describes an activity where students receive bags of M&M's and make predictions about the number of each color in one bag, a group of bags, etc. They consider how the data changes as the sample size increases. The teacher provides an assessment list called a "Did I?" sheet and makes his expectations clear by giving his assessment rubric to students. Also there is some discussion of a bilingual classroom where students share the same experience but discuss it in groups using different languages.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Well-designed performance tasks give teachers the information necessary to evaluate the depth of students' understanding — but how can teachers determine quality work? This workshop demonstrates how teachers can construct assessment tools for benchmarks of student understanding. The role of students in the construction of scoring tools and the process of assessment will be a primary focus. Content Guide: K. Michael Hibbard.
