    I’ve been contemplating assessments with spirals too.  I think it comes down to being familiar enough with what you covered and assessing for that alone.  My school is performance based, so all of our assessments are already focused on learning goals.  So for each quiz, we have listed out which standards are covered on the quiz, and the quiz’s are written with that in mind.  Unit tests cover what all the quiz’s cover up to that point.  Students are then given a score that shows them their proficiencies by learning goal.

    Hope this helps, or at least provides a point to build on.  As I said, I’m still sorting this out too.  Assessments and homework are both areas that I’m figuring out how they fit into an inquiry learner driven classroom.
