Requires LopeswriteAssessment Description

Monitoring student progress throughout a unit is vital, particularly in a cross-disciplinary STEM setting where so many skills are integrated. Secondary students are more than capable of monitoring their own knowledge and skill development. A self-monitoring tool provides them with clear expectations for the learning outcomes of each day. By self-monitoring, students reflect on their own learning which increases investment and accountability.

Create a tool students will use to monitor their daily progress in your humanities unit. Use the “Sample Student Self Progress Monitoring Assessment Tool” template to successfully complete this assignment.

Part 1: Self-Progress Monitoring Assessment Tool

Include the following in the “Self-Progress Monitoring Assessment Tool”:

Questions that are aligned with the learning objectives, and correlate to the knowledge and skills for each day of the unit plan

Range of mastery for students to evaluate their level of attainment of the objective, knowledge, and skills (similar to the range in a rubric)

Summative question or writing prompt requiring students to express understanding and/or application of the day’s learning.

Part 2: Reflection

In 150-250 words, reflect on progress monitoring and the tool you created.

Include the following in your reflection:

Rationale for your design choice. Discuss how the tool will help students monitor their own progress.

Explanation of how the tool will be implemented and evaluated.

Discussion of the importance and purpose of students monitoring their own progress.

Explanation of how you would use progress monitoring to inform instruction in your future professional practice.

Add your reflection to the bottom of the “Self-Progress Monitoring Assessment Tool.”

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
