Assessment Resources for Teachers

Sharon Ellner

I am working on a project for UW-Extension. My task is to find assessment tools and resources online for teachers to use. If you have suggestions for sites, please let me know. I would also appreciate knowing what you are looking for so I can find what you need.

One that I have used is Rubistar. It is useful for making rubrics. And you can access rubrics that have been made by others:

What else have you found?

Hi Anthony,
Here's a useful set of tools for assessing student writing, using the the 6+1 Traits: http://thetraits.org/scoring_practice.php
There are scored samples of student writing and tools to guide assessment. (Full disclosure: I used to work at Northwest Regional Educational Lab--now Education NW--where these tools were developed.)
Also, having conversations about student work can be a rich professional development activity. Academy for Educational Development has developed online resources to guide this work: http://scs.aed.org/rsw/

appears to be one of those ugly sites you wish you had never contacted. Christina, did you have any problem with spam after using it?

Wow. Read one thread on classroom management - only a few pages - and decided never to go back. Many posts were combative, simply to be combative.
Even though I think I might have added some good ideas, I realized not many really wanted to hear them.
There are too many excellent education sites to waste time reading bickering posts.
Leadership and Learning http://leadandlearn.com/ is good.
GLAD methods and formative assessments are good if that is your style.
http://www.centralischool.ca/~bestpractice/ has wonderful teaching methods and assessment pages.
Good luck!

I "second" Rubistar!

Just wanted to give a resounding "yea!" for Rubistar. It really is great for creating rubrics for virtually any project/assignment/assessment. When I had my own classroom (we're not using an inclusion model and I'm co-teaching), I used it for just about every assignment - both for my students with IEP's and the Mentally Gifted class.
