  1. What can you learn from examining sample assessment items? I learned that the sample assessment items must line up with in-class standards. If they don’t align, then they must be re-written.
  2. How can sample assessment items help you create your own questions? The sample assessment items can help me create my own questions because they gave me a guideline to go by. Such as creating my own questions that line up with the standards.
  3. How can you imagine using sample assessment items in your own teaching? I loved how the educator had the students break down the summary/story into sections that helped them organize the text for a better understanding.

It helps to figure out what questions need to be asked or what review they might need to do in order to figure it out.

It is kind of a reference to use to create your own questions so that you can mold them to your own personal lesson.

1.  What can you learn from examining sample assessment items?

You can learn to see if you need to re-teach the topic if needed.

2.  How can sample assessment items help you create your own questions?

You can use the sample assment items to help align with the parish standards.

3.  How can you imagine using sample assessment items in your own teaching?

We use sample assments to see where all of the students are. If a student struggles with the sample assessment then we will asssist and if a majority of the class struggle then we will re-teach the topic at a slightly different approach as long as it aligns with the standards.
