Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Parts of Speech Writing Assessment - Section 3: Writing Assessment


I used this writing assessment because I like to assess my scholars in multiple test formats in order to prepare them for any type of assessment.  I, also, believe it is important to allow them to write creatively and use their imaginations.  Although my scholars did not complete a constructed response assessment in which they cited textual evidence in response to a reading source as the culminating writing assessment for this parts of speech unit, I still believe the assessment was rigorous because it was not a multiple choice test in which the answers were provided for them.  They had to be creative to demonstrate their firm conceptual grasp of parts of speech in the context of writing a structurally sound original narrative.
