    Assessment for Learning
    The following quote is from a clever and insightful blog:
    http://learningisgrowing.wordpress.com/2011/02/15/angry-birds-a-lesson-in-assessment-for-learning/
    “Assessment for Learning is based on extensive research conducted by Paul Black and Dylan William. In their 1998 study Inside the Black Box, they refined the term ‘formative assessment’ by emphasizing that assessment is only formative when:
    it is an integral part of the learning and teaching process; and
    assessment evidence is actually used to:
    modify teaching to meet the needs of pupils; and
    improve learning.”
    The Rationale and Overview goes on to state that “Assessment for Learning involves the following key actions: sharing learning intentions; sharing and negotiating success criteria; giving feedback to pupils; effective questioning; and encouraging pupils to assess and evaluate their own and others’ work.”
    A Test Worth Taking
    Just as teachers vary their instructional techniques to suit different learning styles, they can also create tests that give students choices to show what they know and how they learn best.

    FORMATTING THE TEST
    Seems silly but don't forget to put the place for the pupil's name in a prominent position.
    After using varied questioning strategies to assess knowledge and understanding of concepts, reread and simplifly. Allow sufficient space to provide for teacher comments.
    A prominently placed key to explain the use of criteria for the assessment with point value of questions or sections.
    EVALUATING THE TEST
    Take the test yourself.
    Ask THE question: Does the test provide true evidence of what the student has learned.
