Teaching/Learning StrategiesThe primary purpose of assessment and evaluation is to improve student learning. Assessment is the process of gathering information from a variety of sources (including assignments, day to day observations, conversations or conferences, demonstrations, projects, performances, and tests) that accurately reflects how well a student is achieving the curriculum expectations in a course. As part of assessment, teachers provide students with descriptive feedback that guides their efforts towards improvement. Evaluation refers to the process of judging the quality of student work on the basis of established criteria, and assigning a value to represent that quality.
Assessment and evaluation will be based on the provincial curriculum expectation and achievement level outlined in the revised Ontario Curriculum documents.
A variety of strategies will be used to assess and evaluate student achievement. These strategies include verbal communication, diagnostic assessment, observation of performance, and assigned written or practical tasks.
Assessment is ongoing in order that the progress of each student may be evaluated and that the students strengths and needs be identified.
Assessment and Evaluation strategies may include:
• informal and formal testing
• interviews and oral exams
• self and peer evaluation
• project performance review
• unit tests
• practical project evaluation
• exam or culminating activity
