Where do I start?
The first step in determining your approach to assessment is thinking about your students, classroom, and assessment needs. Filling out a needs assessment worksheet can support you in this process.
This worksheet asks you to consider:
- Your student and classroom characteristics
- The information you hope to gain through testing
- The types of decisions you’ll make based on the results
- The available resources you have for administering and scoring a test
