5 Assessment Strategies Every Teacher Should Know | e-Learning | Scoop.it

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.

Sounds like some great ideas to stimulate critical thinking

Audrey's curator insight, March 5, 2014 6:51 PM

All 5 assessment methods involves  students leading the learning. Asking the students questions based on their reading of the topic helps their analytical  skills and allows them to be in charge of their learning.

27 Simple Ways To Check For Understanding ~ TeachThought

27 Simple Ways To Check For Understanding ~ TeachThought | e-Learning | Scoop.it

"Checking for understanding is the foundation of teaching.Whether you’re using formative assessment for data to personalize learning within a unit, or more summative data to refine a curriculum map, the ability to quickly and easily check for understanding is a critical part of what you do. (Which was the idea behind our post last March, “10 Assessments You Can Perform In 90 Seconds Or Less.”)

 

"The following infographic Mia MacMeekin offers up 27 additional ways to check for understanding. Some aren’t necessarily quick–”Test what you learned in a new situation”–but there are a dozen or more other ideas that are worth adding to your teacher toolbox, many of which aren’t content-related, but rather cognitively-related (Locate 3 people who agree with your point of view.)"

I will take a look at this program.  If I could start Monday that would be perfect! I'm probably too late which would be sad because it seems to be relatively inexpensive.

For Blended learning to be successful educators need to really unpack the principles of TPACK and SAMR. It is the considered use of the tech for education purposes not the tech itself that is the driver.
