Promote student reflection in formative assessment
In addition to creating discussions, low-stake quizzes and self-assessment opportunities in Brightspace for formative assessment, teachers can use the Portfolio tool to give students an opportunity to document their process of learning, reflect on their process, and get the formative feedback they need to improve.
Evaluate learner progress with interim assessments
Quickly create quizzes to assess concept mastery throughout a course by copying questions from an existing course, grabbing them from a shared district collection, or even importing a CSV file. Use release conditions to set proficiency goals before students can progress to new concepts, to scaffold new materials, or to release content based on a specific student’s needs.
Deliver standards-aligned summative assessments
Create and deliver traditional standards-aligned assessments to gather insight into individual student progress and differentiate instruction. The Question Library is a central repository that stores and archives quiz questions that you can reuse within a course for your formative, interim, and summative assessments. Create multiple collections within the Library to organize your questions by type and topic, making it easier for you to find questions, pull them into your assessments, and even create a randomized pool. Share assessments with classrooms across the district or state to gather comparable data on students to identify trends and target interventions and resources.
