In last week's blog(http://www.pyppewithandy.com/2/post/2011/12/pyp-pe-a-grade-4-summative-assessment-task-for-net-games.html), I introduced a summative assessment task for one of my grade 4 classes. I allowed for the students to drive the summative assessment in this unit as they were allowed to choose how they could be assessed. A couple of days ago, I blogged about the other grade 4 class and the summative assessment task that they chose (Net Games Creation). Today's grade 4 class decided upon what skills that they would like to be assessed on with a partner. They could choose one of the existing skills that I taught them earlier in the unit or they could create their own skills- completely their choice. At the end of last week's class, I recorded the 5 different skills that each group of 2 came up with for the final assessment. Using this information, I created individualized assessment sheets for each group that we used in today's class. For today's assessment task, they had to:
Self-Assess how they felt they did in this summative assessment of Net Games
Describe how they felt the unit went for them
Optional: Make suggestion to me, the teacher, on what I can do to improve the unit for the next's year's grade 4 classes
As well, I left space for a brief comment from me on the final assessment task and unit in general.
I was extremely pushed for time as there was a lot to do and wasn't able to assess all the groups, however, I will allow a wee bit of time at the beginning of next class to complete the remaining few groups that need to be assessed still. Please view slide show below of student work. I feel as though the class went well and the students had more ownership over the way they were assessed in this unit.
