This unit on the Production of heat had many different elements. The students learned different ways that heat is produced; such as through burning, friction, and electricity. I created an assessment that identified the main points within each lesson of the unit. I created the assessment with all written response questions to give the students the opportunity to justify their thinking with the option of writing or illustrating their thoughts. Allowing the students to have an option assisted with scaffolding the assessment to meet the needs of my learners. To score this assessment, I will meet with my third grade team and we will assess proficiency in the student responses. This way the team can meet and discuss the responses objectively.
