5 Assessment Strategies Every Teacher Should Know

5 Assessment Strategies Every Teacher Should Know | Science Education 7-12 | Scoop.it

"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."

Christopher Resetar's curator insight, February 13, 2014 12:00 PM

Like other comments on this scoop, I really like this article, especially items #1 and #2.  I really like those options because they are unconventional options that I still think would provide an appropriate level of challenge for the students as well as provide an alternative form of just a simple pencil and paper exam.  I think option #1 is more feasible for elementary school because it would allow students to work on skills that are more age appropriate like consolidation of information and looking for quality source material.

Ruby Day's curator insight, February 14, 2014 3:45 PM

Sounds like some great ideas to stimulate critical thinking

Audrey's curator insight, March 5, 2014 6:51 PM

All 5 assessment methods involves  students leading the learning. Asking the students questions based on their reading of the topic helps their analytical  skills and allows them to be in charge of their learning.

5 steps to using self-assessment in the classroom

5 steps to using self-assessment in the classroom | Science Education 7-12 | 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.

If your goal is to have students become excellent learners, this should be on your list of things to consider!

High school science teacher Tyler DeWitt was ecstatic about a lesson plan on bacteria (how cool!) -- and devastated when his students hated it. The problem was the textbook: it was impossible to understand.
