ECE 640 Topic 1 Assignment Instructional Coaching on Assessment Strategies


Assessment strategies allow for teachers to measure the level of understanding students have on a specific topic. Learning to effectively use assessment strategies enhances the students’ understanding and allows teachers to determine their next steps.

Imagine you are a teacher, and your principal has tasked you with leading a professional development session in which you coach your peers on the effective use of assessment strategies.

For this assignment, select a state science or social studies standard for a Grade K-3. Create an 8-10 slide digital  presentation, to include the following:

  • Define formative and summative assessments, explain the differences between them, and describe when each is used in the instructional process .
  • Using the content state standard you selected, create three learning activities that could be implemented during instruction to establish a positive attitude for science or social studies.
  • Using the content state standard you selected, provide three examples of questioning strategies that are engaging for students and appropriate for formative assessment.
  • Describe an assessment activity that can be used to engage young children as well as assess their knowledge and skills that aligns to the science or social studies state standard  you selected.

The digital presentation should include presenter’s notes, title page, and reference slides, and be supported by 3-5 scholarly resources.

While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
