Assessments are the products teachers use to determine two key components of the teaching and learning process: what students have learned and how effectively the teacher has instructed. Assessment strategies are an important element of effective teaching. Moreover, teaching students strategies to be successful in various assessments increases students’ confidence and in return provides better assessment results.
For this assignment, you will create a 10-12 slide digital presentation to share with your students at the beginning of the school year. The presentation should provide students with an engaging overview of the kinds of assessments they can expect in the content area, as well as ways to be successful on each assessment.
Identify the grade level and content area you are focusing on, and include the following in your presentation:
Use language appropriate to your middle or high school students. Student-friendly language is essential.
Include images, graphics, and examples to enhance the slideshow’s visual interest.
Support your presentation with at least three scholarly resources.
