Easing the Stress of Evaluations for Teachers

Easing the Stress of Evaluations for Teachers | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it
Of course I've done my best throughout the year. I've submitted my lesson plans on time and attended all of the professional and staff development. I've also documented efforts to help struggling students, completed my extra duty assignments, and conducted parent conferences over the phone and in person. I've differentiated lessons for special-needs students. I think I've done a good job. But what does my evaluator think?

15 assessments that don’t suck… | Blogush

At a recent edcamp I put up a session entitled “Assessments that don’t suck.”  It was an attempt by me to simply find new ways of assessing kids that don’t suck.  To keep my sanity, I must always do something different each year.  I think there is only one unit that had an assessment this year that I had used in the past (Mill Girl Poetry Slam).

used properly, testing as part of an educational routine provides an important tool not just to measure learning, but to promote it."


Standardized testing is in some respects a quest for more rigor in public education. We can achieve rigor in a different way. We can instruct teachers on the use of low-stakes quizzing in class. We can teach students the benefits of retrieval practice and how to use it in their studying outside class. These steps cost little and cultivate habits of successful learning that will serve students throughout their lives.

Like other comments on this scoop, I really like this article, especially items #1 and #2.  I really like those options because they are unconventional options that I still think would provide an appropriate level of challenge for the students as well as provide an alternative form of just a simple pencil and paper exam.  I think option #1 is more feasible for elementary school because it would allow students to work on skills that are more age appropriate like consolidation of information and looking for quality source material.

Warning: Good Grades May Harm Student Health

Warning: Good Grades May Harm Student Health | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it
by Marilyn Price-Mitchell, Ph.D. This article makes the case that good grades matter far less in school than developing internal strengths like critical thinking, compassion, and curiosity.

 

Even for children who naturally perform well on academic tests, a good grade is only one measurement of success.

 

===> A few things that school testing cannot measure include: <===

 

- Open-MindednessEffort

- Social & Emotional Intelligence

- Critical Thinking

- Initiative

- Creativity

- Collaboration

- Curiosity

- Respect

- Kindness

- Capacity to love

- Honesty

- Compassion

 

Internal strengths, like those listed above, are far more important to a life of success and well-being than whether a child earns an “A” on an Algebra exam or are accepted to a top-rated university. In fact, many tests only measure a student’s ability to produce a correctly memorized answer.

As I interview teachers, the role of reflection is very important to their pedagogic practices. It takes on many different modes: writing, driving to and from work, listening purposefully, etc. It is not a one-size-fits-all.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 18, 2015 10:06 PM

When politicians, bureaucrats, and corporate bosses engage in rhetoric about education, it is in the advancement of a neo-liberal agenda. Teaching and education is relational and, as such, cannot be easily measured and quantified. Yet, they are priceless.

An important consideration is that "grit" is not just for learning, but for life in its broader context. Grit as a tool for succeeding in school is healthy when connected more broadly to life.

Mikko Hakala's curator insight, April 13, 2014 3:22 PM

The article discusses failures and how students can learn resilience and optimism. Three dimensions:

 

1) Teachers should pay attention to character education (non-cognitive skills). Optimism can be learned, for example by enouraging flexible thinking. In short, input from positive psychology should be implemented.

 

2) Gamification, if successfully integrated, can produce failure-resilence. 

 

3) Teachers sharing personal stories of failures and joys of overcoming them. Role playing.
