The 6 Types Of Assessments (And How They're Changing) - Edudemic | Blended Learning | Scoop.it

Testing, especially any sort of standardized testing tends to get a bad rap. Teachers complain that they spend too much time teaching to a test. But assessments do have value, and an important place in our learning structure. By measuring what students are learning, we as teachers can look at how we are approaching different subjects, materials, and even different students. The handy infographic takes a look at different types of assessments and their attributes and questions. Keep reading to learn more.

You're right Kelly, and parents, school and teachers have a key role in digital litteracy !

SSIGH... and THAT is the problem. How do you know your students are using tech devices for learning as opposed to sending text messages or chatting on facebook...
Minter Dial's comment, July 28, 2013 2:28 AM
Hi @Kelly, @David and @Ilana. It's a major battle. What techniques have you used? I've tried a few things with some success, but it depends on the student profiles...: (a) have a Twitter wall where the interaction can be public ; (b) have no-device moments (c) warn that anything on their screen can be shared in public (if I find it).

Karen Dietz's comment, July 24, 2013 1:23 PM

After laying down some ground rules about effective use they amazed us with their creative responses. It is not the tool. It is how you use it. And how teachers plan for it!
