I have posted a number of resources from Ross Parker and this one requires a bit of time to understand…and yes, I think it is worth the time. The directions he provides in the upper right hand corner describe how a student should use this visual, as a tool to “steer & assess your own learning.”

Our students need to learn how to self-reflect and this tool has the potential to engage students and assist them in reflecting on their work regarding topics studied in technology.

You may download this visual as a png, pdf or pages document on the website. Take some time to check it out and see what you think.

The Listening Teacher: Getting Feedback From Your Students

The Listening Teacher: Getting Feedback From Your Students | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it

"Mid-year or more frequently, I ask students to complete an evaluation form. I craft the questions carefully so simple answers are hard to write. Instead, I try to create specific, complex questions that cover the material, the classroom activities and the students—peers and the individual.

Many teachers shake their heads and avoid these exercises. They scoff that students would actually take the forms seriously or that the students will say anything useful. But I find the nature of the questions often elicits a straight answer—short, but helpful."

Mary Cunningham's insight:

This is a great blog post on feedback and the importance of asking and listening to our students.

This post provides a number of strategies that may help you receive better feedback from your students. The author, Jane Healey, suggests that you formulate "inquiries specific to a task." She has had students write an exemplary comment about another student (receiving "fabulous point-of-view descriptions") and then have the student write one for themselves.

Additional questions you might ask are also provided for research projects and class discussions.

Darleana McHenry's curator insight, January 6, 9:07 AM

Would you allow your students to evaluate you as a teacher? I think that you would learn a lot.

Listening to our students through asking thoughtful questions and providing descriptive feedback to their peer and self assessments.

5 Fundamental Assessment Resources From Learnist

5 Fundamental Assessment Resources From Learnist | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it

"Education is all about the numbers these days. My personal preference is just the opposite.

I have this fantasy where I toss grades in the garbage. In this dream, I let everyone redo things and have conferences to discuss improvement."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, October 18, 2013 7:50 PM

As teachers must is expected from us daily and more and more we are asked to do assessments. Many of us think of testing as soon as we hear assessment. This post discusses assessment stating "assessment isn’t always employed correctly. It sometimes gets over, under, or misused. Assessment should work seamlessly into the classroom routine. The traditional test can be intrusive and stressful. True assessment flows into the lessons and gives a constant pulse on student learning."

The author then provides links to five Learnist boards that focus on assessment, specifically:

* Simple Ways to Monitor Student Progress

* Assessment

* Exemplar Rubrics for Assessment

* Socrative Response Systems

* Metryx

The first three boards have seven to ten resources. The last two links are on a board that is called 21st Century Assessment - Digital Documentation and additional resources are also found here.

"Education is all about the numbers these days. My personal preference is just the opposite." This is an interesting line. What makes it necessary to measure only with numbers?
