ELM 530 Types and Purposes of Assessment Full CourseWeek 2 Discussion

DQ1 As a teacher, how would you use standards in terms of creating a rubric? How does this help in analyzing an assessment?

DQ2Author Rick Wormeli describes a “working definition of mastery” in the following way:

Students have mastered content when they demonstrate a thorough understanding as evidenced by doing something substantive with the content beyond merely echoing it. Anyone can repeat information; it’s the masterful student who can break content into its component pieces, explain it and alternative perspectives regarding it cogently to others, and use it purposefully in new situations.

How can assessment planning help teachers guide students toward mastery in the way Wormeli describes?
