Via Tibshirani, Joni Galbreath
Christina Gasaway's insight:

This too. Is great for providing what questions to ask and how to encourage the student interaction through questions. As a teacher we have to encourage students to dig deeper than just the who, what, where, when, why, and how questions. students need to think on a higher level, which this website helps with creating questions along those lines.

Joni Galbreath's curator insight, April 12, 2014 1:16 AM

I remember many of us had questions or concerns about HOW to ask questions. Questions are a HUGE part of ASSESSMENT! This article provided some good insight on questioning as well as a list of references that can help with this topic.


*Sidenote- one good thing about using the internet for research is that it is usually up-to-date. The list of books/articles mentioned here are relatively new, most recent from 2014 and the oldest from 2008.

Jessica Roberts's curator insight, April 10, 2014 4:09 PM

This is a useful tool that can allow the students to create a visual definition for a word. The can define the word or use a clever phrase that goes along with their word. They can also tie a picture into the poster to help visualize the word.

Jamie Pope's curator insight, April 13, 2014 8:42 PM

Allows users to summarize a topic or correlate a definition to a picture (or vice versa). It would be a quick, efficient way to assess overall understanding of a specific topic. Allows users to really think outside of the box.

I found this to be a great multiple resources in one package. I had a teacher rave about how class dojo helped her assess behavior issues in the classroom and implement a plan for better behavior. Also, Stick pick I think is neat. The program picks a person randomly for you and aligns with Bloom's taxonomy.

Jamie Pope's curator insight, April 13, 2014 9:39 PM

Exit passes are a wonderful idea to gauge student understanding of topics with out having the students answering aloud in class. Depending on the class students maybe reluctant to answer if they think their answer is incorrect or if students would make fun of them.
