Lesson Plan

Learning and Innovation Skills and Student Assessment


Learning refers to the process of gaining wisdom and skills through studying, experience or being taught. Learning and innovation skills differentiate students who are prepared to face the complex challenges of life, and those who are not. Student assessment is the process of attempting to know if students have understood what they have learnt. Student assessment can be done using tests, quiz or other appropriate methods. Learning helps students to achieve certain objectives that may be useful in the future. To ensure that students learn through teaching, the instructors need to prepare a lesson plan, which illustrates the objectives, the method of teaching, and the method of assessing if the students have learnt.


A lesson plan is essential for all instructors, as it helps them not to skip any points, and it helps them to achieve their objectives of teaching. In order to evaluate the degrees of learning for the students, a quiz can be used, such as a mathematics quiz. The quiz may also serve the purpose of determining the levels of innovation skills among students. A lesson plan is essential in teaching, and the level of learning and innovation among the students can easily be assessed and evaluated through different ways, such as doing a performance test.

Learning Objectives in the Lesson Plan

After the end of the lesson, the student should be able to

  • Understand the process of solving word problems in mathematics
  • Site the interdisciplinary relationships between mathematics and other subjects
  • Work out advanced levels sums in mathematics
  • Cultivate an awareness and tolerance of different prospects concerning the teaching and learning of mathematics.
  • Develop and understand the requirements needed to be a professional mathematician

Assessment Performance Level

  • The teacher will provide students with at least five word problem questions of different complexity and levels. The students will read, understand, comprehend, and solve questions accordingly to get the expected answers.
  • The students will calculate these sums within ten minutes. This short time for calculating five sums aims at testing the tolerance and appreciation levels of all students.
  • During the last lesson of the week, students will act as the mathematics teacher of the day. They will come up with a lesson plan, and teach other students their preferred topic that will have already been covered in class. During this teaching task, the students will be required to demonstrate their mastery of mathematics as a profession.


  • The performance of the students in the word problems will determine their innovation skill. Students who score three and above will be considered well equipped with innovative skills while those who will score less than three will be considered as poorly equipped with innovation.
  • The demonstration of the ability to teach their favorite topic will depict the students’ mastery of the topic and the degree of their learning. Those who will who will have content and a flow of ideas during the demonstration will be considered as learned. Those who will lack content and face challenges in demonstrating their understanding will be considered as having not learned.

While performing the above tasks, learners should be able to demonstrate concrete abilities to learn the content with ease. They will be required to come up with innovating ways of solving problems provided to them. They should develop creative ideas of solving such problems in the most appropriate way.

Creativity and Innovative Skills

While assessing creativity and innovation during the mathematics lesson, the lecturer expects that the learner should demonstrate creativity and innovation skills from three perspectives

  • The student should demonstrate ability to be a creative thinker. The student should derive a variety of techniques for creating ideas, such as brainstorming, deductive reasoning, experimenting, and researching.
  • The student should examine, analyze, refresh, and evaluate ideas to increase creative efforts (CCSS, 2014).
  • The student should implement and use existing knowledge in coming up with creative ideas to facilitate teaching and learning.
  • The student should communicate ideas to other students and teachers appropriately.
  • The student must be able to understand that creativity and innovation takes time to perfect. He/she should also view failures as opportunities to rectify small mistakes (ALA, 2014)
  • The student should finally implement innovation by acting on creative ideas, which will be used in the professional area where creativity and innovations is paramount.

How the Students will be Assessed in the Chosen Area

  • They will be asked to operate mathematical sums of different complexities and at different levels.
  • Asked to work creatively with others
  • Asked to develop at least two creative ideas
  • Do a presentation using any technology to illustrate how they will implement and demonstrate their creative ideas (ISTES, 2014).


The performance of the students can reflect their understanding and mastery of a concept or a subject. On the other hand, it can also reflect on the ability of the teacher to deliver. Poor performance on some of the students may reflect lack of learning on the part of the students, while poor performance by all students may reflect poor teaching on the part of the teacher, and therefore students not learning.


All schools and colleges must comply with the ISTES and CCSS standards in order to provide quality education. All the students in institutions of higher learning must be able to demonstrate different levels of understanding as per the stated academic requirements. Teachers and professors should also ensure that all these standards are met through assessment and evaluation of students’ work. Learning is a continuous process, and innovation skills can help improve the learning process of individuals. On the other hand, a lesson plan is important for instructors and teachers, as they help them to arrange their work in a chronological order for perfect delivery of the information. A lesson plan also helps the instructors not to leave out important parts when teaching.
