Gauging Student Needs Assessment Purpose of the Assessment To gather information about what students already know and what they wonder about Washington DC sites. What I want to learn from my students? I want to find out what they already know about the Unit Question and what they know about Washington DC. How I have tried to promote higher-order thinking? I ask students to think about the various types of Word documents they know how to use and how they can display information effectively. How the assessment information helps me and my students plan for upcoming activities in the unit? If students have misconceptions about how to use various types of documents in Word, I can provide scaffolds. If students have different levels of understanding about how to come up with possible internet sites, I can provide various resources. We will revisit this assessment throughout the unit for students to add their knowledge. What feedback or additional ideas I’d like? I would like help on my assessment. I think I need to elicit more higher-order thinking, but I’m not sure how.
