5 Assessment Strategies Every Teacher Should Know

5 Assessment Strategies Every Teacher Should Know | www.homeschoolsource.co.uk | 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."

Audrey's insight:

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.

For my teaching friends. Go beyond memorization and help your students climb "Bloom's Ladder"!!

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.

I love the socratric process. it helps the receiver come to the needed conclusion without telling them the answer. It becomes their answer.

I agree Teri. It encourages reading and encourages students to be in charge of their learning.
