Formative Assessment Efficiency, Summative Assessment Proficiency

Formative Assessment Efficiency, Summative Assessment Proficiency | Coaching Central | Scoop.it
I'm often surprised when teachers are surprised when their students perform poorly on tests. Sure there are kids whose scores belie their skills, such as those who have test anxiety or had a bad day or took the test on an empty stomach. For the most part, though, students' performance on tests is predictable based on their day to day performance in class. And that's the problem: teachers who are surprised by students' performance on tests often aren't assessing students' understanding in class a

Mentors: The One You're Assigned and the Ones You Find

Mentors: The One You're Assigned and the Ones You Find | Coaching Central | Scoop.it
