Pre-Assessment and Standard Alignment
A significant component to instruction is the relationship between standards and assessment. In any given classroom environment, the assessment provided must directly relate to the objective, which measures the academic standard. A clear alignment between standards and assessments is the foundation for quality instruction.
This assignment focuses on standards, objectives, and assessments in the area of instructional design. Complete “Instructional Design Topic 2: Pre-Assessment and Standard Alignment” within the “Instructional Design Unit” template.
