- — Karissa Moy (@moy4math)Tue, Oct 30 2012 21:57:23Algebra 1 honors quiz today: 10 multiple choice questions. Students barely show any work on quiz and most score below 70% #VUAssessment
- — Ellen Beverley (@EllenBeverley)Thu, Nov 01 2012 17:34:47@moy4math I can see how multiple choice questions would discourage showing your working since students know that can't get extra credit.
- There are a few exceptions:
- — Christian Jenkins (@CJ_TeachingMath)Sat, Oct 20 2012 02:20:11Alg I for HS credit test involves word problems where students must answer in context reasonably #VUassessment
- Assessment is a place where a lot of forces outside the classroom come into play. This can be a challenge...

- — Christian Jenkins (@CJ_TeachingMath)Fri, Oct 12 2012 17:41:52Teacher bemoaned only having 27 school days before EOC, then gave students a half hour quiz for the 1.5 hour block #BrainMinutes
- — Ellen Beverley (@EllenBeverley)Tue, Oct 23 2012 16:39:54Teacher on state test: It's not gonna hurt you, it's not a big deal, no need to stress. Do not get freaked out. You do need to give 110%.
- — Ellen Beverley (@EllenBeverley)Tue, Oct 23 2012 16:40:368th grader about not being warned about a standardized test today: "Since when do they just pop a state test out of nowhere?"
- .. or potentially a good thing.
- — Elizabeth Pruitt (@EPruittTeach)Sun, Oct 28 2012 23:57:16Metro is implementing essay responses for standardized test. Is this higher cognitive demand? Is it equitable for all students?
- Students clearly have pretty well formed expectations about work and testing.
- A lot of their expectations come out of the ways they know how to play school:
- — Elizabeth Pruitt (@EPruittTeach)Fri, Sep 28 2012 22:51:13Student: Does the benchmark test count as a grade? Teacher: No. Student: So we don't have to stress about it? #assessment
- — Melissa Martens (@melissajmartens)Fri, Sep 21 2012 20:38:26A: answers wrong and class laughs. B: "That's like one of my answers" C: "As long as you say it with authority it's okay" #VUStatus
- — Simon Lee (@mathlovessimon)Tue, Oct 23 2012 20:04:17Student takes two class periods to work on 1 page so she has to finish test during recess....oh wait...she finishes rest of test in 15 min.
- ... which cuts both ways.

Assessment in the Placement Classrooms
Many of the formal assessments you report seeing in your classrooms are summative. They seem to usually focus on recall and calculation.
