Based on the Diagnostic Assessments Graphic Organizer, the types of assessments that should be administered will vary depending on the purpose of the assessment and individual student needs.
The first type of assessment to consider is an informal or performance-based assessment. These types of assessments can provide a picture of a student’s current level of knowledge and skill. Examples include observations, interviews, case studies, portfolios, checklists, and rubrics. These are beneficial in being able to get a more comprehensive view into how a student learns and grows over time as well as what their strengths and weaknesses may be in certain areas.

Another type of assessment to consider is formal tests or standardized tests such as achievement tests or aptitude tests. These types of assessments measure students’ knowledge or skills against established criteria for comparison with other students across regions or even countries. These can provide educators with a more consistent way to evaluate learning outcomes by ensuring all students have access to similar material and receive graded results that correlate with one another from year-to-year if needed.
Finally, special education evaluations should also be considered when necessary based on individual student needs. Evaluations such as educational history reviews; intelligence testing; medical exams; speech/language/hearing screenings; adapted physical education evaluations; vision screenings; psychological testing; academic testing/screenings in reading (phonemic awareness), writing (spelling) and math (word problems); functional behavior assessments among others can all play important roles in helping identify any potential learning disabilities or special needs that would need attention so that appropriate supports can be provided going forward for each individual learner’s success.
When determining which types of assessments should be administered it’s important for teachers to keep both their district policies/procedures along with each individual learner’s unique situation taken into consideration when making decisions about what kind of diagnostics best fit the goals they have set out at hand whether it is helping a struggling learner make gains in his/her academic performance over time or just simply getting an idea about where the class stands currently before proceeding forth within instruction from there moving forward accordingly
