Outcomes: 6, 8

Step 4: Assess Student Learning

Guiding Questions

  • Look back at what you determined as acceptable evidence in Step 2.
  • What are the most appropriate methods and activities for assessing student learning?
  • How will I align my assessment strategies with my teaching strategies?

Sample Assessment Tasks

In addition to ongoing assessment throughout the lessons, consider the following sample activities to evaluate students' learning at key milestones. Suggestions are given for assessing all students as a class or in groups, individual students in need of further evaluation and individual or groups of students in a variety of contexts.

A. Whole Class/Group Assessment

B. One-on-One Assessment

C. Applied Learning

Provide opportunities for the students to use their recognition of geometric shapes and their properties in their daily life and the environment. For example, have the students look at instructive drawing books in which the students are taught based upon a composite of 2-D shapes that are then adapted. Have them identify the basic 2-D shapes as the faces of 3-D shapes in the study of those. Proceed on to identifying the 3-D shapes in the environment at school, home and in the community.
