Assessment Plan

Assessment Timeline

Before project work begins
Students work on projects and complete tasks
After project work is completed

Students will be asked to write a creative article about themselves, their weaknesses and their strengths, their perception and attitudes about life, etc.

 Teacher will be conducting an oral examination every after topic discussed and will also conduct a 50 point test after every unit. Students will also be required to make and everyday entry to a journal about their learning in a day.

Students will be grouped by two and will be asked to illustrate using pictures/diagram  the organization of the animal body, tissues, cells, and blood components.

Assessment Summary

Journal entries will provide feedback on the students’ understanding and progress and any clarifications on the topics discussed.
Creative write ups will determine the students’ background, skills and attitudes and perceptions.
Rubrics will be used as a tool to gauge levels of achievement in a required project.
Power point presentations will be used to present the topic and elaborate the subject matter.
