"What started last year as a Self Assessment Guide, has been reworked into a more general tool for assessment. This new guide is suitable for teacher, peer or self assessment and also offers a visual map of what we want students to learn (with highlighting of which concepts are most important). Although still ICT specific, this guide could be adapted to any subject by changing the attributes and keywords."

Check out this revised assessment tool from Ross Parker. In the post he shares his experience with using this for a year and the awareness that the tool was not as functional as he had hoped. In brief, he has made four shifts.

1. Taking a tool designed for self assessment and realizing that the same time used throughout the year gets old quickly. Therefore, it is redesigned to "more general, useful for teachers and peers to use."

2. A shift from strands (high level learning outcomes), to attributes (which allows the tool to be used by students over many years as their knowledge and skills grow).

3. A move away from levels or grades to a focus on ways of learning.

4. Allowing students to determine levels rather than assigning them based on personal view.

Last year this tool was well received and this new version brings it up to a new level. Consider using this with students and perhaps have them keep a copy of it asking them to review it later on in the school year. You can download a pdf version of the tool from the website.

Interesting way to approach self-assessment in vocational areas. Could be adapted easily

The article provides suggestions on ways to prersent these questions across multiple grade levels.

What might you learn about your students/learners if you were to ask your students to answer these questions? TeachThought suggests that you might use these questions in a number of ways:

* Jigsaw

* Choice (as in let the students choose the questions they answer)

* Personalize (this may work well if you know your students and can ask them to answer questions that would relate to them)

* Use them as a writing prompt

* Team building games

* Big Picture

* Wing it

More information on these is available in the post.

This set (or part of this set) might be a useful beginning of the year activity.  Worthy of a look.

I plan to use this list in my all of my classes.
