Assessment/Evaluation Techniques

  • Roving conference by the teacher to ensure the students are on task while in small groups and to aid students with any concerns they may have.

  • Informal teacher assessment using probe questions to collect evidence of the individual student’s understanding of the difference between fact and opinion and the difference between a primary and secondary source. The teacher checks students’ notes for completeness and accuracy. Anecdotal notes are made by the teacher when necessary.

  • Student self-assessment of the immigration chart. Student uses the criteria of neatness, accuracy, and completeness. Teacher does a diagnostic assessment of the immigration chart.

  • Informal teacher assessment of students’ understanding and application of Catholic values by using probe questions during the class discussion.

  • Formative teacher assessment of the student economic growth charts. The teacher uses a checklist to record accuracy and completeness in the charts.


  • The teacher, peer helpers, and/or peer tutors need to circulate through the groups to help students with terminology and to ask appropriate questions to cue and prompt students in the correct direction.

  • ESL students and students with special needs require specific help with vocabulary words. Students require detailed explanations on the meaning of factual material, opinion material, primary sources, and push and pull factors.
