Assessment of teaching & learning  – considering how well students have learned, and providing feedback to students on how well they have learned – comes in many forms, including:

  • When a teacher asks a student a question to find out how well the student understands a certain topic
  • When a student asks his/her own question and the teacher considers what that question reveals about the student’s understanding
  • When a teacher circulates around a classroom to overhear and interpret student small-group conversations on the learning topic
  • When a teacher assigns, collects, and reviews student written work
  • When a student considers his/her own learning goals, need areas, and strategies for improvement
  • When a teacher discusses student progress toward learning objectives at a conference with a student and/or his/her parent(s)/guardian(s)
  • When a teacher provides report card standards-based feedback and narrative commentary to a student and his/her parent(s)/guardian(s)
  • When students and their teachers receive and analyze feedback from standardized assessments, including the Connecticut Smarter Balanced Assessment and the SAT

Indeed, assessment of teaching & learning occurs millions of times each day in the Trumbull Public Schools!
