Reflection: Quizzes The Book Thief Dramatic Adaptation Quiz - Section 3: Quiz


When assessing students, a teacher has to make important choices. What to ask?  How to ask it?What to expect? At this point in the year, I like to focus on written answers that are detailed and show the depth of thinking going on.  However, in the case of this quiz, I have included multiple choice and short answer questions as I have many times this year. If you follow me, you know my thinking on the topic, but if not see the reflection piece in this earlier lesson with details about my choice to use multiple choice along with my short answer questions.

In addition to that, I chose to use these questions because I love - especially at point in the year - that I can touch on different abilities with one quiz.  Questions 1& 2 for example build on one another and the concept of supporting your response.  Question 8 asks my students to put their thinking together after reading two pieces and find commonalities.  These are all common core skills I've covered this year, but I'm now asking students to use those skills in a new environment.  It is a statement about their true growth that I need as we get closer to the end of the school year.

At the same time, the scoring of two short answers per student (with over 100 students) is a monumental task.  While I do typically focus on written answers at this point, the addition of more on this one assignment will not be feasible for me to score and return in a timely manner.
