To understand the importance
of Stiggins’ first four
assessment principles and link
the principles to classroom
Studying the Learning Team

 Reading Debriefing
As a table group, come to consensus on:
 Why is it important for teachers to state
  a Learning Intention?
 Why is it important for teachers to have

  a Success Criteria?
 Why is it important to do these two

  things in day-to-day classroom practice?
What we will accomplish:
   Analyze a lesson
   Discuss Important Mathematics to Develop
   Identify the Learning Target and Descriptors
   Translate objective(s) into student-friendly
   Create success criteria
   Construct 3 good questions
   Summarize learning experience

Examining a Lesson

In teams, read the lesson
Fill in Part 1 of the form
       Important Mathematics to Develop
       Learning Target and Descriptors
       Lesson Objective in Student Friendly
       Success Criteria
Part 2: Constructing 3
Good Questions
   To access student background
   To push student(s) thinking
   To help the student summarize the
    important ideas from the lesson
   None of these questions can be yes/no
    questions and they all should promote
    levels 2/3 of Depth of Knowledge
   Part 3: Sharing
   Exploration of the Task
As a whole class discussion, summarize the
important mathematics in the lesson.
This could be a continuation of question 3

 in part 2.
The discussion should also tie back to the

 success criteria.
Walk Away Questions:

   How does this process support
    good teaching?
   How does this process support
    formative assessment principles?
   A formative assessment system is more
    than CABS and descriptive feedback.
   MTLs/MTSs using this in classrooms
    have noticed a difference in teaching
    practice and student learning.
   The implementation of these four
    principles bring formative assessment
    into classrooms on a day-to-day basis.
