Over the past four weeks you’ve had the opportunity to create a classroom environment that supports the foundations of differentiated instruction (DI), brainstorm differentiated strategies that align with the Common Core State Standards, and create the foundation for a unit plan based that incorporates instructional technology while adhering to UDL and DI principles.

This week you will use what you’ve learned to create a summative assessment for the unit plan you created, using one of the strategies from your PLC blog, and with the classroom environment you’ve outlined in Week Two.

This summative assessment must include:

  1. Common Core State Standard being assessed for mastery (it can be the same one you used in Week Four’s assignment).
  2. A unit goal that aligns with the Common Core State Standard:

    The students will (Measurable Verb) by (A specific outcome with a specific tool) with ___% accuracy.

    • Measurable – How will mastery be measured? (e.g.: Classify, discriminate, create, construct, defend, predict, evaluate, etc…). Be sure to avoid subjective words such as know, understand, learn, or appreciate.
    • A specific outcome – what will students do to demonstrate mastery? (e.g.: skill or knowledge that has been gained to as a result of this unit).
    • Measurable progress – What tool will be used to measure mastery (e.g.: project, journal, test, etc.)
    • Proficiency Level – What is an acceptable level of achievement to demonstrate mastery?
  3. Three Formative Assessments – Using the three day lesson plan outline from the unit plan, create a formative assessment for each day that:
    • A unique differentiated teaching strategy for each day’s lesson.
    • Addresses multiple intelligences.
    • Considers student’s different learning styles.
    • Explains how the assessment results will be used to drive instruction.
  4. Summative Assessment: Using the summative assessment outline from the unit plan, create a summative assessment that appraises mastery of the Common Core State Standard and the Unit Objective. It must include:
    • Directions to complete the assessment written using vocabulary and terms geared towards your identified student population.
    • A rubric that clearly details how each part of the assignment will be graded.
    • Addresses multiple intelligences and various learning styles.

The assignment should be a minimum of five pages in length and must include reference to the course text and one additional research (scholarly article or online resource) in creating the formative/summative assessment. The assignment must be cited in proper APA format. A title and reference page must be included.
