Assessment Evaluation Assignment Instructions

Overview

The purpose of this assignment is to research, evaluate, and understand valid, reliable, fair, and appropriate assessment tools used in schools to screen, diagnose, and measure student academic achievement. There are 2 Assessment Evaluation assignments in the course, each with a different focus. They are:

1. Literary Focus: Assessment Evaluation: Reading Assignment

2. Content Focus: Assessment Evaluation: Behavior, Remediation, or Intervention Assignment

a. This should focus on Spelling, Writing, Math, or Behavior.

Since education assessment instruments are costly and not listed in the course materials, this assignment consists of researching and evaluating assessment instruments. If your school has any education kit(s) discussed in this assignment, you are permitted to review the testing materials on your own, however, this task is not required. A citation would be included on the reference page.

Instructions

Step 1 – Research

1. Select 4 instruments from the Assessment Evaluation Approved Assessment Instruments List document located on the Assessment Evaluation Assignment page.

2. Using Buros Mental Measurements, examine 4 measurement studies or measurement reviews about the existing measures from the Assessment Evaluation Approved Assessment Instruments List document. There should be 4 assessments reviewed for both Assessment Evaluation assignments and 8 total assessments.

3. Critically analyze the measures, addressing strengths and weaknesses. Use the provided Assessment Evaluation Template to ease the process of collecting information. This template is to be submitted with the assignment. Each critical analysis should include the following:

· A summary of the assessment instrument with clear, specific information unique to the instrument, including the population who could be tested with the instrument.

· An analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the measure. There must be a minimum of 2 reasons to support each one.

· Justification for why the measurement would be an appropriate measure for different populations.

4. Repeat #3 for each of the 4 instruments.

5. Use a separate data collection template for each instrument. Save each as a Microsoft Word document labeled: instrumentname.doc

NOTE: When submitting the evaluation, these separate templates must be compiled, along with all other items, into 1 Word document.

6. Other resources for research are listed in the syllabus and may be used in addition to Buros. If using the testing instrument manual, list it in the references. Buros is directly accessible through the JLF library database for your convenience.

Step 2 – Written Report

1. Organize and format each assessment instrument with the headings and subheadings outlined below. Do not write the questions or statements from the Assessment Evaluation Template. Write in well-formed paragraphs that flow logically from one topic to the next.

2. Each instrument review should contain a minimum of 2 pages of content, including the data collection template, in addition to the cover page and reference page. Format the paper in current APA. The data collection template will be used as a chart in the report at the end of each instrument review.

3. The total paper (10 pages) should be presented in this order:

· Title Page (1 page)

· 8 Pages of Content

· Assessment Evaluation (AE) 1

· Completed AE 1 template

· AE 2

· Completed AE 2 template

· AE 3

· Completed AE 3 template

· AE 4

· Completed AE 4 template

· Reference Page (1 page) – All assessments should be referenced in current APA format.

4. Format each written assessment evaluation with the title, “Analysis of Assessment Name,” using the following headings.

· Summary of Assessment

· Strengths and Weaknesses of the Assessment

· Justification and Use of the Assessment

· Insert data collection template as a chart

Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via an plagiarism detection tool.
