Session Title ASSESSING LEARNING IN SCIENCE


No. of Participants Male: Female:
Participants Profile Education Supervisors, School Heads, Master Teachers, Key Teachers
Duration of the Session 4 hours
I. Learning Objectives At the end of the session, the participants are expected to have a thorough understanding on assessing
learning in Science. Specifically they should be able to:
1. differentiate the forms of assessment (formative vs summative);
2. differentiate between traditional and non-traditional (authentic) assessment;
3. Explain what is to be assessed in the classroom;
4. Discuss the assessment formats used in the classroom;
5. Analyze sample TIMSS-based assessment items;
6. Develop varied assessment items for a particular topic in a quarter.

II. Key Understanding/s Assessment is an integral part of the teaching-learning process.


Assessment in the classroom is aimed at helping students perform well in relation to the learning
standards.
The learning standards in the curriculum reflect progressions of concept development.
Formative assessment enables the learners to demonstrate what has been learned through a range of
activities in all parts of a lesson.
Summative assessment enables teachers to describe how well the students have learned the
standards / competencies after a given chapter, unit, or at the end of a quarter.
There is no single assessment method that results in a perfect assessment. What method the teacher

uses would depend on what he/she would like to assess in terms of knowledge, understanding or skill.
Thinking skills can be better assessed using the non-traditional format or authentic assessment
