Assignment 2 asks us to evaluate our unit plan and write a summative assessment task based upon the leaning experiences in our unit. Sounds straight forward right?? OK things aren’t always that simple though, you have to think about the grade you are aiming your work for and write the task sheet so students of that particular can understand the objective of the task. The following dot points taken from the EDC3100 learning path provide helpful hints for when you begin to write your task sheet.
- A section provided for the student name, Task name, unit, year level, final result;
- A description of the task (make sure you name your task);
- The due dates, including draft submissions;
- The criteria that will be used to assess (more on this on the next page); and,
- A description of the process to be used for the task and the conditions and materials to be used.You may want to scaffold this to support students to follow a specific process that will help them produce the evidence.
- Identify how you assess each individual student.
If students work as a group to complete your task, then when developing the rubric for the task you need to identify how you will assess students individually even though they have participated in group work.
