Checklists, Rubrics, and Assessment Ideas

I. Checklists
#1. This site is designed to create flexible and easily customized checklists for performance
tasks; however, the checklists could be used in class as informal assessment for other types of
tasks as well. http://pblchecklist.4teachers.org/index.shtml

#2Lots of checklists to use with different subjects-

%20Everything%20Book.pdf
II. Attribute Charts-
6th Grade LA--Both of #1a and #1b were kept in lesson plan books to document the need for
certain instruction and to support differentiation.
#1-This is one that a 6th grade LA team used to quickly pre-assess the students ability to write
effective arguments. The elements across the top include elements of argument they wanted
to see in a student essay as well as some more general requirements. The students names
were written down the left side of the paper, and then, a 0, 1, or 2 was added for each attribute.
This is a little more time consuming than you would use for some of your assignments, but it
provided data that drove instruction for an entire unit.

#2Could be used for a ticket out the door or other strategy. As you read the tickets out the
door, make three piles for each of these descriptors. You can transfer the names to the chart or
just use the pile to guide instruction and possible groupings for the following day. You can
decide whether or not you need to actually complete the chart.

These are examples of descriptors that you could include for each rating. You would not want
to use all of them to assess the students work.

IVSkill Checklist
You can use one of these per student, or you can flip it to use like the attribute chart in II.
Change the goals to address the skills or concepts practiced/demonstrated when the strategy is
used.
1. If the goal is to have informal, formative data to drive instruction and to allow you to quickly
see what the students know and understand, this will work. If the goal is to have a summative
grade, you would not want to use something this simple.
