I feel that I meet this standard because I am continuously thinking of ways that I can assess my students to validate that they are learning the content. I also happen to enjoy crafting exams, because by developing the exams early in the lesson planning, I'm able to ensure that I'm teaching students the material that they will be tested on. The first artifact is a sample exam that was part of a larger assessment portfolio I created during one of my college classes. While many times, multiple choice exams are seen as assessing lower-level knowledge, I try to write questions that will challenge students' higher thinking skills.
The second artifact was a few of the warm-up quizzes that I used in the Foundations of Computer Science course I taught during my student teaching internship. I used these to help gauge how much students were retaining from previous lessons, as well as to warm them up for the day's lesson. Because students had to hand-write code, they couldn't rely on any assistance from the programming software that they would normally have, which allowed me to get a more accurate picture of which students needed additional help.
