Contextual Information
This step allows you to provide a picture of your class that will enable the reader to better understand your instruction and decision-making skills.

Overview

Many factors can affect teaching and learning; these could include the community, the school district, and/or individual school/classroom/student factors.

The information you gather about your teaching and learning context and about individual students will help provide perspective to the reader who will be scoring your submission.

This part of your submission will not be scored, but the information you include should have implications regarding your professional choices.

Your response must be limited to 1,500 characters (approximately one-half page typed). No artifacts can be attached to the Contextual Information textbox.
a. Describe your classroom. Include the grade level, content area, subject matter, and number of students. Provide relevant information about any of your students with special needs.
b.
Describe any physical, social, behavioral, or developmental factors that may impact the instruction that occurs in your classroom. Mention any linguistic, cultural, or health considerations that may also impact teaching and learning in your classroom.
c.
Describe any factors related to the school and surrounding community that may impact the teaching and learning that occurs in your classroom.

This step should focus exclusively on planning for the assessment.
Activity: Developing an Assessment
Select or design an assessment from a lesson that you have developed and will teach to your class. Your assessment should
● assess state and/or national content standards,
● assess the learning goal(s) for the lesson, and
● include a rubric or scoring guide.
Your assessment should also be able to produce quantitative or qualitative data to be used for analysis. Once the assessment is selected or designed, respond to the guiding prompts below.
Guiding Prompts
a. Provide an in-depth description of the assessment. Provide a rationale for choosing or designing the assessment based on its alignment with the standards and learning goal(s) that meet the students’ needs.
b.
What data did you use to establish a baseline for student growth related to this lesson’s learning goal(s)?
c.
Describe the rubric or scoring guide you have selected or designed. How does it align to your learning goal(s)? How will you communicate its use to your students?
d.
What evidence of student learning do you plan to collect from the assessment? How will you collect the data? Provide a rationale for your data-collection process.
Enter your response in the textbox below.
Required artifacts for this textbox:
● representative pages of the selected assessment (maximum of two pages)
● the rubric or scoring guide (maximum of one page)
● the baseline data (maximum of two pages)
To include the artifact(s) with your response, see the “Artifacts” instructions at the top of this page.
