I plan on teaching 2nd grade, but 3rd grade was the next available grade. I chose the English/Language Arts blueprint for 3rd grade. The blue print specifically that I chose was the Reading Comprehension where students are meant to analyze story elements in a story. The purpose of my exam would be to simply analyze the story elements in a book we have read. To get them prepared, we will have studied elements of a story with other books. The test, however, will be about a book we have read, but not discussed. The test would begin with a short multiple choice section to test the student's comprehension of the story. These questions will ask mostly things like why did something happen or where someone was when something happened. This part should be pretty easy if the student paid attention to the story. The test would go on to fill out a story mountain (shown below)
This will test the student on analysis of story elements like background, setting, etc and climax, resolution. The test would go on to ask for an analysis of the main characters described in the book. The plot, theme, and narrative tone would be asked about in an essay format as well. I think the questions are fair and reliable because as long as the students paid attention to the story and class discussion, they would understand the story and know the questions. These questions would impact a student's performance by intrinsically motivate them to do well in order to do well in the future. Statewide and national exams would impact students also by motivation because students would want to do the very best they can because their score would be riding on whether or not they get in the college they want.
How can a teacher completely factor out inequity? It seems to me that any type of special attention could be seen as inequity, like staying after with a student to give them extra help. I have spoken to a few teachers and they have said that it just depends on who is judging you on that fact. Anyone can have an opinion about anything. If a parent think you are showing favoritism or inequity, then speak with them and make sure to ask them how they think you should change and try to do that (within reason). This can be applied to principals, faculty peers, and other students.
