Curriculum Evaluation Ornstein & Hunkins Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :

and, some teachers focus mainly on staff development issues related to changes in curriculum, measures and/or desired outcomes.

Of these various roles, I am most interested in how to change instruction so that it can meet desired standards and measurements. Ultimately, I believe that this is what makes the real difference in being able to achieve outcomes, particularly with the growing need for differentiated teaching strategies to achieve the same results for students with unique learning needs.

As I have mentioned, I am an advocate of summative and formative assessments because I believe they serve two very different, but complimentary purposes. That being said, I also believe there needs to be the right mix of the two. Currently, our href='https://www.paperdue.com/topic/school-essays'>school relies too much on summative assessments due to increased standardized test requirements by our district and state. This has affected every role that teachers play in our assessment process. This has been particularly frustrating given that our school is beginning to realize the important of differentiated instruction, yet still must be driven mostly by summative assessment that don't consider the unique ways in which students demonstrate what they have learned.
