21 Ways to Check for Student Understanding

21 Ways to Check for Student Understanding | Education | Scoop.it

"The ultimate goal of teaching is to do just that – teach, not stand up in the front of the room and talk.

But sometimes it’s easier to talk than to teach, as we all know, especially when we need to cover a lot of material in a short amount of time. We hope students will understand...

The problem is, we rely on these tests to measure understanding, and then we move on. Few of us take the time to address weaknesses and misunderstandings after the tests have been graded."

3-2-1: Students consider what they have learned by responding to the following prompt at the end of the lesson: 3) things they learned from your lesson; 2) things they want to know more about; and 1) questions they have. The prompt stimulates student reflection on the lesson and helps to process the learning.
