Assessment ‘for’, ‘as’ and ‘of’ Learning
Terms such as diagnostic, formative and
summative have been supplanted with the
phrases assessment for learning, assessment as
learning and assessment of learning.
Growing Success, 2010, p.30
Discuss why this might be happening.

Minds On – Placemat Activity 1
Think Pair Square
Individually:
• read each of the statements listed under Activity 1
on your Placemat (Side A)
• decide whether each statement represents an AfL,
AaL, or AofL practice
In Pairs, then Fours
• Compare your responses with your partner. Where
are they the same? Where are they different?
16
Placemat Activity 1 - Debrief
• Which statements were difficult to
categorize?
• What were the criteria you used to make your
decisions?
• What is it that determines whether an
assessment is for as or of learning?
17
Common Understanding
What are:
• Assessment for learning
• Assessment as Learning
• Assessment of Learning

How does identifying, sharing, and clarifying
learning goals and success criteria lead to the
development of respectful differentiated tasks?
How do learning goals and success criteria help
teachers differentiate :
–
–
–
an entry point for learning?
the way students learn?
the way students demonstrate their learning?

Video: Developing Learning Goals
Before Viewing
• As a table group, complete the Concept Attainment
Activity for Effective Learning Goals
During Viewing
• Add to the ‘success criteria’ for effective learning
goals - the 3rd column
After Viewing
• Consolidate the criteria for effective learning goals
31

Developing Learning Goals
Applying the Criteria
In Like-Subject and/or Grade groups
Choose an overall expectation and:
• Create a learning goal from the
overall expectation
• Consider the specific expectations
support that overall expectation
and use them to develop
incremental learning goals
SEE PLACEMAT ACTIVITY 3.
• Ensure that the learning goals meet the criteria established
in the previous activity
35
36
Differentiating Assessment
Subject Pairs or Triads
1. Based on your learning goals, think
about and briefly describe a strategy
or task that provides information for:
• assessment as, for learning
SEE PLACEMAT ACTIVITY 3.
and/or
• assessment of learning.
2. Describe how this strategy/task can be differentiated based
on (a) student interests, (b) learning preferences and/or (c)
readiness
37
For example . . .
SEE PLACEMAT ACTIVITY 3.
Task - Journal Entry- assessment for learning
• Differentiated by interest – offer choice of topics
• Differentiated by learning preferences – offer a choice of
hand held recorder, conference or written format
• Differentiated by readiness – provide support such as
sentence starters or key questions to guide thinking for
some students
Differentiating Assessment
Subject Pairs or Triads
1. Share with another like or related
subject group.
2. Provide each other descriptive
feedback on the extent to which the
differentiated strategies/tasks align
with the learning goals.
3. Refine based on feedback
4. Be prepared to share with large
group
SEE PLACEMAT ACTIVITY 3.
39
Video – Success Criteria
Subject Groups
During Viewing:
1. All - track strategies that are used to establish and create Success Criteria
2. Individuals, select a question (below) to think about and respond to after
viewing. (Ensure that all questions are covered by the group.)
Focus Questions
• What are success criteria, and how are they used by teachers or students in
assessment for learning, assessment as learning, and assessment of
learning?
• Why is it so important that students be engaged in the development of
success criteria?
• How are success criteria linked to learning goals, descriptive feedback,
40
rubrics, and self-assessment?
Success Criteria
Subject Pairs or Triads
1. Develop success criteria for the
previously developed learning goals.
2. Examine each of the differentiated
strategies/tasks to see if they
provide opportunities to
demonstrate the success criteria
related to the learning goals. Refine
strategies/tasks as needed.
3. Be prepared to share your
observations with the large group.
SEE PLACEMAT ACTIVITY 3.
41
How do you know your students are learning?
1. List all the ways you know
your students are learning.
2. Which ways provide
information for assessment
as/for learning? of learning?
3. Write one way per stickynote – use three colours;
one for as learning, one for
for and one for of learning.

1. Your previously developed
strategies/tasks provide evidence of
student learning from which source(s)
- conversations, observations and/or
products?
2. In what other ways could you use
conversations, observations and/or
products to gather information about
student progress towards the
learning goals?
SEE PLACEMAT ACTIVITY 3.

Assessment for Learning
and as Learning
Five strategies that support student learning:
1. identifying and clarifying learning goals and success criteria;
2. engineering effective classroom discussions and other learning
tasks that elicit information about student learning;
3. providing feedback that helps learners move forward;
4. through targeted instruction and guidance, engaging students as
learning resources for one another
5. through targeted instruction and guidance, helping students
understand what it means to “own” their own learning, and
empowering them to do so - Adapted: from Black and Wiliam
(2009) as cited in Growing Success
51
Consolidation - Video
Table Groups
• Examine the Five Strategies
on Handout 6.

56
Assessment for Learning
The ongoing process of gathering and
interpreting evidence about student
learning for the purpose of determining
where students are in their learning,
where they need to go, and how best to
get there. (p. 144)
57
57
Assessment as Learning
The process of developing and supporting
student metacognition. Students are actively
engaged in the assessment process; that is,
they monitor their own learning, use
assessment feedback form teacher, self and
peers to determine next steps; and set
individual learning goals. (Growing Success, p.
143)
58
Assessment of Learning
The process of collecting and interpreting evidence for
the purpose of summarizing learning at a given point in
time, to make judgements about the quality of student
learning on the basis of established criteria, and to
assign a value to represent that quality. The
information gathered may be used to communicate the
student’s achievement to parents, other teachers,
students themselves, and others. It occurs at or near
the end of a learning cycle. (p. 144)
59
Assessment for Learning and
as Learning
As essential steps in assessment for learning and as learning,
teachers need to:
– plan assessment concurrently and integrate it seamlessly with instruction;
– share learning goals and success criteria with students at the outset of learning to
ensure that students and teachers have a common and shared understanding of
these goals and criteria as learning progresses;
– gather information about student learning before, during, and at or near the end of
a period of instruction, using a variety of assessment strategies and tools;
– use assessment to inform instruction, guide next steps, and help students monitor
their progress towards achieving their learning goals;
60
...cont’d
Assessment for Learning
and as Learning
• analyse and interpret evidence of learning;
• give and receive specific and timely
descriptive feedback about student learning;
• help students to develop skills of peer and
self-assessment.
61
Professional Judgement:
Determining a Grade
To determine a student’s report card grade, teachers
will consider:
• all evidence collected from a variety of sources
through observations, conversations, and student
products;
• the evidence for all the tests/exams and assignments
for evaluation that the student has completed or
submitted;
• the number of tests/exams or assignments for
evaluation that the student did not complete or
submit;
• the different weights assigned to various pieces of 62
evidence.
