Project Based Learning Assessment: Issues and Practices

Project Based Learning Assessment: Issues and Practices | Assessment strategies for teaching and learning | Scoop.it

Project based learning, a model that has definitely struck a chord with modern education system, is a fine tuned learning model that will address major learning issues. When you have group learning, you will see that both individual as well as group learning needs are fulfilled, and both the group and individual learn the subject matter and gain knowledge. It is highly important to consider assessment when you are training students using this model for furthering their education needs and standards.

Maree Whiteley's insight:

While individual learning can be easily assess, there are many issues in assessing a project based learning. You will need to recognize if the group and individual have accomplished all that they needed to in the process of learning through the project they have collectively worked upon. Here is a very realistic outline of the issues involved in assessing PBL...

Moving Beyond KWL Charts To Assess Prior-Knowledge

Moving Beyond KWL Charts To Assess Prior-Knowledge | Assessment strategies for teaching and learning | Scoop.it

one of the most powerful means of challenging students to think of what they already know is by using a problematic scenario. Such a scenario is usually a complex, ill-structured situation that embeds within it significant curricular concepts that stimulates inquiry at the beginning of a unit and can be used as one of the summative assessments

Maree Whiteley's insight:

"Designed as summative assessments, these scenarios serve as diagnostics at the commencement of a unit and they empower students when we use some of their questions to supplement our own lines of inquiry. Problematic scenarios can, therefore, serve as pre-assessments of students’ prior knowledge through the kinds of number of questions they ask" John Barell (morecuriousminds.com)

Different examples of formative assessment

Different examples of formative assessment | Assessment strategies for teaching and learning | Scoop.it
Hi all,

I've created a presentation (with some help from my colleagues) on different examples of formative assessment.

You can view it here:
https://docs.google.com/presentation/pub?id=1nzhdnyM
Maree Whiteley's insight:

Note the definition I'm using at the beginning of the presentation:

A formative assessment or assignment is a tool teachers use to give feedback to students and/or guide their instruction.

It is not included in a student grade, nor should it be used to judge a teacher's performance. Both of these would be considered summative assessments.
