predicting outcomes Application is the ability to use material previously learned in new situations Skills include inferring, estimating, applying concepts to new situations, ordering, sequencing, understanding changes in word meanings, and constructing graphs and charts Analysis is the ability to understand both the content and structural form of material and the ability to break material into its component parts Skills include writing analogies, decoding, using logic, drawing conclusions, predicting sequences, making inferences, and distinguishing between cause and effect Synthesis is the ability to put parts together to form a new whole Skills include planning, deductive reasoning, creative thinking, testing hypotheses, drawing conclusions, problem solving, and planning a project Evaluation is the ability to use definite criteria to judge the value of material for a given purpose Skills include developing and evaluating criteria, determining appropriateness and relevancy of information, discovering common attributes, and evaluating material for extraneous information Copyright © 2002 Milliken Publishing Co MP3460 Using Student Assessments Assessment forms can measure
