Assessment includes a web-based bank of high quality assessment items representing the curriculum and/or the standards and designed for on going uses at school.
The quality of the assessment items is achieved through development teams that include experts in the subjects and in classroom-assessment, who are accompanied by leading, academic advisors and by communities of teachers.
The LMS (Learning Management System) of Ofek enables the teachers to manage
the whole process of assessment:
Choosing assessment unit
in accordance with the age level, topics, skills, and other characteristics and in accordance with their goals.
Assigning the assessment unit
to students as a test, as class work or as homework.
Monitoring of students' progress
on the task.
Checking student performance and providing feedback
with the help of an automatic check or through the use of answer keys and detailed rubrics.
based on performance.
Data retrieval and reports production
presenting achievements on the level of the individual student or the class by topics or skills over time. These reports can help in planning continued instruction.
environment can also serve for teacher professional development in general and in the field of assessment in particular. The teachers of Ofek can integrate assessment as part of the continued process of teaching-learning-assessment in their classroom. They can choose the appropriate tools (based on the curriculum), and adapt them to their needs or use them as a model for developing similar tools themselves. They can share their understandings with their colleagues and thus construct and enrich their school bank.
