(Johnstone, Altman &amp; Thurlow, 2006) </li> <li> Slide 3 </li> <li> www.urbanschools.org Great Urban Schools: Learning Together Builds Strong Communities UDL Assessment Assessments: measure exactly what teachers are trying to find out embed personalized supports, strategies, and approaches used regularly adjust to many individual differences UDL Assessments: applied to deciding what you will do tomorrow in your classroom to increase the power of your teaching and learning opportunities for your students methods for determining a learner's knowledge &amp; abilities </li> <li> Slide 4 </li> <li> www.urbanschools.org Great Urban Schools: Learning Together Builds Strong Communities UDL Assessment in Science Needs assistance accessing printed text accessing printed text Consider: The students summative knowledge of the process of erosion Demonstrates knowledge verbally, through drawing, or through voice-to-text word processing software Uses text to speech software for access to curriculum content for access to curriculum content What supports and strategies does the student use regularly? What are the students learning needs? What is the teacher trying to find out? </li> <li> Slide 5 </li> <li> www.urbanschools.org Great Urban Schools: Learning Together Builds Strong Communities 8 Principles of UDL Equitable use Flexibility Simple, intuitive design Perceptible information Tolerance for error Minimal physical effort Appropriate size &amp; space for approach &amp; use Fully inclusive Accounting for Diverse Learners in Universally Designed Assessment of Student Learning Qualitative and mixed-methods forms of assessing student progress help us: Understand essential contextual variables that contribute to instructional effectiveness; Provide a more holistic picture, rather than a set of discrete skills, of what students have learned and are able to do. </li> <li> Slide 6 </li> <li> www.urbanschools.org Great Urban Schools: Learning Together Builds Strong Communities Universally Designed Progress Monitoring: Assessing the Bigger Picture &amp; the Smaller Pieces 8 Principles of UD Equitable use Flexibility Simple, intuitive design Perceptible information Tolerance for error Minimal physical effort Appropriate size &amp; space for approach &amp; use Fully inclusive </li> <li> Slide 7 </li> <li> www.urbanschools.org Great Urban Schools: Learning Together Builds Strong Communities Using Daily Data Collection for Progress Monitoring of Instruction 8 Principles of UD Equitable use Flexibility Simple, intuitive design Perceptible information Tolerance for error Minimal physical effort Appropriate size &amp; space for approach &amp; use Fully inclusive </li> <li> Slide 8 </li> <li> www.urbanschools.org Great Urban Schools: Learning Together Builds Strong Communities Tune instructional decisions Provide Meaningful Feedback Determine desired learning outcomes Utilize and interpret assessments Record student performance Universally Designed Classroom Assessment Create or select universally designed progress monitoring tools 8 Principles of UD Equitable use Flexibility Simple, intuitive design Perceptible information Tolerance for error Minimal physical effort Appropriate size &amp; space for approach &amp; use Fully inclusive </li> <li> Slide 9 </li> <li> www.urbanschools.org Great Urban Schools: Learning Together Builds Strong Communities Determining Outcomes to be Assessed What we want students to know and be able to do as a result of completing a learning activity? Student learning outcomes in culturally responsive classrooms take into account and integrate what students want to learn Determine desired learning outcomes </li> <li> Slide 10 </li> <li> www.urbanschools.org Great Urban Schools: Learning Together Builds Strong Communities Culturally Responsive Progress Monitoring Determine desired learning desired learning outcomes outcomes Types of Learning Outcomes Dispositions Skills Products Knowledge Reasoning Students will be able to name four alternative/renewable energy sources. Students will be able to read aloud from an article in a science magazine for kids at 60 words per minute at a 95% or higher accuracy rate. Students can design, carry out, and write a social science research study on ways to improve energy consumption. Students will be able to compare and contrast the impacts of using non- renewable and renewable energy sources. Students will be able to give three reasons why it is important in a democratic society for adults to have a solid knowledge of science. </li> <li> Slide 11 </li> <li> www.urbanschools.org Great Urban Schools: Learning Together Builds Strong Communities No one form of assessment can address all of our questions about student learning.

Students demonstrate a skill or prepare a product, which are assessed based on observation of the skill or evaluation of the product. Portfolio Assessments Students and teachers collect student work over time across content areas and to reflect on students progress over time. </li> <li> Slide 13 </li> <li> www.urbanschools.org Great Urban Schools: Learning Together Builds Strong Communities Using and Interpreting UDL Assessments How often, when, where, and by whom will assessments be administered?
