Student Pages for the 2009-2010 9th Grade Class
Below you can click on any student's name, arranged by the hour in which they have History, and view examples of their work and get an overall perception of their progress in U.S. History. For some rationale to support our pursuits, click here for an article, called "ePortfolios and Assessment for Learning."

Assessment

Assessment should be representative of the individual student. Multiple representations of student assessment means that each assessment piece match student capability and personality with mastery of content; allow designers to be designers, writers be writers, and creativity to be supported by curriculum rather than inhibited by it. For this reason, the students below have chosen their medium for representing their understanding of our curriculum, and their work is linked from that page according to the High School Content Expectations for U.S. History and Geography. See below for some rubrics used to maintain quality and achievement.

Rubrics

Rubrics are a method of assessment that is both generic as well as defined. Rubrics allow the student to know what expectations exist prior to beginning to work. They also allow the teacher to objectively apply a standard to each piece of student work equitably. In an article titled "Assessment Rubrics," written by Heidi Hayes Jacobs, Ed.D. for Pearson Education, the argument for rubrics is made quite clear and lies within the principle of student performance assessment. Some of the rubrics below are based on adopted versions supplied by Pearson-Prentice Hall.
