The importance of this stage is the idea that planning does not end with the development of the actual tools of elicitation but rather the actual process of administration of an assessment procedure requires consideration. 5. Develop a Scoring Rubric: The development of a scoring rubric consists of the exact specification of the way responses elicited from the student in relation to particular tasks will be understood by the assessment team. The development of an understanding of how the task will be completed by students is crucial for the construction of a meaningful assessment procedure.
The choice of specific elicitation task that will be used is directly connected to the decisions that have been made as to what is important to assess and what the functions of this data will be. For example, if the educational program aims to develop knowledge of a particular scientific concept, a written test of explicit knowledge may be suitable (the characteristics of written, indirect, discrete, and substantive). If an educational program aims to develop knowledge of a particular scientific procedure, the performance of the procedure within the laboratory and observation of the task may be suitable (the characteristics of physical, authentic, integrative, and procedural).
Tasks of this kind are termed knowledge tasks and the data elicited from a task of this kind is the content of the knowledge presented. These tasks address substantive or content-based knowledge of science. There is a certain degree of knowledge and performance in every elicitation task. But there is difference in the intent of different types of elicitation tasks on this criterion. A performance task requires the student to actually do the task whereas a knowledge task request the presentation of knowledge.
