Assessment Tool Overview

Outcomes Brief Description For AS OF

Chapter quizzes will serve as summative
assessment focusing on the Knowledge and
Attitude outcomes presented throughout the 3
Chapter quiz chapters my unit will cover. They will be a

1-3 mixture of select and constructed response
items. Select response items will be graded off
of a pre- built answer key and constructed
response will be graded off of a checklist.
Comparison Charts are used throughout the
unit as a visual aid to understand and compare
different perspectives and geographic
locations. The use of the chart format is
significant in that it is used to clearly outline
the differences between contrasting items,
Chart 8.1.1, 8.1.2, 8.1.3, 8.1.4, viewpoints, and perspectives. As formative

comparisons 8.1.5 assessment, these charts will show whether or
not students can make connections between
relevant comparisons or analyzing relative
data. The formative assessment will assist in
my planning of future analysis and application
lessons, while also showing an understanding
of lesson content.
Checklists are used as formative assessment
tools prior to summative pieces, as a way to
focus students revision of material before the
chapter quizzes, and as an informal check to

ensure an efficient pace while working on the
summative piece. Checklists will also be used
along- side peer evaluation to act as
assessment AS learning.
The Petition to the Shogun is the Summative
performance piece for the unit. Students will
research a perspective of their choice from the
Petition to era, formulate an opinion on the continuation

Project the shogun based on their formulated, critical,
argument. This is heaviest weighted
summative assessment in the unit, and students
will have time in class to complete their work.

Students will use a booklet of notes in the


Cornell note- taking format to record key ideas
and details from each lesson throughout the
unit. Review periods before each test will be

will be checking up on students notes
periodically to ensure they are making the
important connections and recording relevant
details prior to summative assessment.
An exit slip is used once, for the very first
lesson of the unit which is a concept- building
class on Isolationism. It does not explicitly
connect to any specific outcome but is
necessary for pre- assessment before the

concept of the unit. I am using an exit slip
because I can generate the appropriate
questions for my pre- assessment and student
interest. This will be used to formatively assess
understanding of isolationism.
Students will respond to various prompts and
information throughout the unit, this is to
formatively assess their ability to engage with
information directly, and show their practical

gauge which students need further instruction

will be using throughout the unit. During class
