5 Assessment Strategies Every Teacher Should Know

 

Most teachers and current textbooks offer varied approaches to the material to be learned so the teaching can be brain-compatible with the varied student learning styles. It is only logical that respect for these individual learning styles be incorporated into assessment forms.

Kirsten Macaulay's curator insight, February 13, 2014 5:28 AM

Option 1: Open-Book & Take-Home Tests

 

Option 2: Student-Made Tests

 

How My Students Create And Study For Their Own Exams

This is the process I use for student-created math final exams in my classroom. Your process may differ depending on grade level, content area, or other local concerns.

I give the structure for the tests students are required to create such as, “Include 15 calculations and 5 word problems with 2 from each of the 10 subsections of the chapter”I make a copy of each test and change the numbers, but not the structure of the equations. They knew I would do this and that the numbers will be different than the ones they usedStudents are assigned homework to make practice tests on their own, using the template of the test they created and changing the numbers themselvesIn class, for further review, students exchange their practice tests with partners for study and to the confirm accuracy of their answers (as I don’t have an answer key to all of their self-created tests)

Option 3: The Complexity & Diversity Of Project-Based Learning

Option 4: Written Response–Or Rather, The Pre-Writing

Option 5: Ask A Question


Great article.
