The evaluation of student work is an on-going process. A complete measure of student understanding requires a range of assessments and a variety of learning activities. Traditional tests and quizzes provide one measure of student understanding, but they are limited. New state assessments include performance tasks, such as the Document-Based Question, which require higher order thinking skills in the form of analysis, synthesis and evaluation of information. Therefore, class work increasingly incorporates these types of learning experiences into daily instruction.

Students are also required to demonstrate what they know and can do through assessments that go beyond the scope of state testing. Research, debates, simulations, and writing assignments incorporating historical information into a creative format are only some examples of the wide range of assessments used to measure our students’ understanding of social studies.
