I am a teacher of special education at the high school level who primarily teaches math classes for students who receive services in the area of math. I am also a grad student working on my master's in curriculum and instruction. We are currently discussing different ways that we go about assessing our students through both formative and summative assessments. I am the only special education teacher in the program, so I was hoping to get feedback from others in this field as to how they use assessments in their classrooms. Do you find that binary or multiple choice options give you a good idea of what the students truly know and understand? What do you do at the end of a unit to measure their deep understanding and reasoning? Thanks for any input?
