This file contains an assessment AND the steps to take to make a common formative assessment based on your essential learning outcomes. Although I created it based on PLC training and to use in my PLC classroom, it can easily be used with NO adaptation in any class. The file addresses the learning outcome of "citing evidence" and uses the exemplar text "Chicago" by Carl Sandburg. The file includes the learning targets to meet, DOK levels, rubric to determine the proficiency levels of your students, 2 page assessment (3 selected response, 1 constructed response), and scoring guide with annotated exemplary response. This file does NOT include lesson plans on teaching the poem, citing evidence, or responding to literature. This is designed to be used by you after your normal lessons to determine proficiency levels that will guide your teaching.
