Induction Day 5: The ART of Assessment-Based Planning


I was unaware when our newest Teaching Excellence cohort entered YES Prep Gulfton last Wednesday, that not only did we have a group of phenomenal teachers on our hands, but also a group of highly talented artists. During today’s Assessment-Based Planning session, TEachers learned to begin with the end in mind. TEachers explored how standards, assessments, objectives, and key points are all connected. Asked to create a visual representation of the assessment-based planning process, TEachers took their art work above and beyond. Below is a sampling of some of our TEachers’ ARTrageous work!

Vote in the comment section for the poster you thing think best AND most creatively represents the assessment-based planning process!

  1. This isn’t even half of the really strong visuals. I LOVED the puppet that illustrated that it is the state standards and summative assessments really “pulling the strings” of student achievement and not the methods chosen for a given lesson! Of the ones presented here, I really like the marathon visual. It provides an understandable analogy for each of the pieces of the puzzle!

  2. I think the most creative drawing is #5 because their representation is an obstacle course. It illustrates how the standards and daily lessons connect together full-circle.

    • Thanks Amanda! It was definitely a team effort and a great representation of what we thought would complete the mission! This was fun to do and an easy way for us to get a clear view of the overall achievement picture.

  3. I’m baised in this voting, so rather than mention the one that my group created, I want to give a Shout Out! to the group that did #2. I love that they included a ski instructor/teacher as encouragement at different points along the way and that they showed how you creep up the mountain to college and then enjoy the ride!

    I also second Paul’s mention of the marionette. It was SO creative. It really made the lesson planning process come to life!
