2g Competency & Evidence

One indicator of Teaching, Learning, and Assessment is:

g.  Coach teachers in and model effective use of technology tools and resources to continuously assess student learning and technology literacy by applying a rich variety of formative and summative assessments aligned with content and student technology standards.

My Masters is in Differentiated Instruction.  Accordingly, I have a strong drive to incorporate formative assessment throughout a lesson.  Combining this passion with my interest in incorporating technology into lessons, I am drawn to technology tools that provide avenues for assessment.  I frequently model these tools, incorporate them into my own sessions of professional development, and teach sessions on how to use them effectively.  Some of my favorite assessment tools include Socrative, Plickers, Spiral, Google Forms, and Padlet.

In this gradebook session, I incorporated Plickers to help me know participants background knowlege.

In this online SAMR course, I use Padlet to have participants synthesize their thinking.


For all of my online courses I teach, I use Google Forms for the end of course evaluation.  While not an assessment per se, it helps me know what questions participants still have and what changes or modifications I can make to the course to improve it.


A large project that I have worked on in my district in relation to formative and summative assessments aligned with content and student technology standards is the the development of digital ELA assessments for grades 3rd-5th.  I explain this in more detail in indicator 3f.
