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.
