5 steps to using self-assessment in the classroom

5 steps to using self-assessment in the classroom | Professional Development | Scoop.it

Implementing some kind of self-assessment is a very good thing, as it enables learners to judge the quality of their work. I’ve done this on an ad-hoc basis at times in the past, but using a formal instrument or procedure can work wonders, even if it has no official bearing on the final outcome.

PLC GAINS Home

PLC GAINS Home | Professional Development | Scoop.it

The Professional Learning Cycle – Plan, Act, Observe, Reflect - is a process that is used by teams of educators for professional learning. Learning occurs during and between team meetings when educators share practice, examine student work and/or access opportunities to build their instructional skills and knowledge-base.

Lyndsay Buehler's insight:

This model might be used as a starting point for shaping some of our meetings based around implementing inquiry in the classroom  The planning piece could be around planning a provocation.  It might have to be more open-ended than the example here, but the general model might work quite well.
