Samantha Deane Edpsy 390 Section 2 Assessment Project When creating assessments for the classroom, there are a number of things that you must consider including validity, reliability, how the assessment links to the standards and objectives set out for the unit, and the distribution of the complexity of items on the assessment. The test and alternative assessment that I created do all of the above. First, the validity, which is the degree to which an assessment actually measures what is supposed to, measured, is high. The test includes items that students need to know in order to be successful in photography for newspaper and yearbook. Also, for the most part, the reliability of the test is also fairly high. The answers to both the test and the alternative project are both straightforward, and the rubrics for both the essay and the photo essay are laid out so students know exactly what they should do. In terms of the standards and objectives being met, I think that both assessments do a good job of meeting them. More specifically, the assessment ensures that the standard is met, since students need all of the skills being assessed to properly take pictures for a student publication. Finally, the distribution of the complexity of the questions is fair, and forces students to think at all levels. As the chart shows, the most questions are in the comprehension category, which gives students the opportunity to show that they know the skills necessary to take excellent photographs. Though most of the questions lie in the comprehension category, there is an equal spread over the three categories: knowledge, comprehension, and application, to test the students at all levels.
