44 Prompts Merging Reflective Thinking With Bloom's Taxonomy

44 Prompts Merging Reflective Thinking With Bloom's Taxonomy | Assessment (including portfolios) | Scoop.it

"It’s been four years since I first published my “Taxonomy of Reflection.” My interest in reflective thinking is rooted in a simple but powerful statement by Donald Finkel who wrote that teaching should be thought of as “providing experience, provoking reflection.” (Teaching with Your Mouth Shut)."

Love the title: "Teaching with your mouth shut"

Fantastic resource, especially if you take time to really reflect on the sample questions posed.

5 Assessment Strategies Every Teacher Should Know

5 Assessment Strategies Every Teacher Should Know | Assessment (including portfolios) | 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."

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.

Sounds like some great ideas to stimulate critical thinking

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.

10 Assessment Design Tips for Increasing Online Student Retention, Satisfaction and Learning

10 Assessment Design Tips for Increasing Online Student Retention, Satisfaction and Learning | Assessment (including portfolios) | Scoop.it
How much time do we put into the design of the assessment plans in our online courses? Is most of that time focused upon summative graded assignments that factor into the course grade? Or, do they also include opportunity for practice and informal feedback?

Assessment should reflect purpose. We require summative assessment in our society and yet we know learners thrive, grow and develop on a diet of formative assessment. The balance is the key! Feedback and the use of authentic assessment tasks are critical positive factors.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, February 24, 2014 5:46 PM

They make sense, but ask teachers about authentic assessment. It is still thought of as an isolated activity where the student does their project alone. That is not the way of the world and has not been forever. We work and learn together. Why not assess together?

Dr Pam Hill's curator insight, February 25, 2014 9:19 AM

Wonderful article that challenges us to think through the online assessments and their prep!

3 Statements That Describe Rigorous Assessment

3 Statements That Describe Rigorous Assessment | Assessment (including portfolios) | Scoop.it

"As we’ve discussed 7 myths about rigor, and the characteristics of rigor in curriculum, the final component is rigorous assessment. There are (at least) three aspects of rigorous assessments."

We've been talking a lot lately about "authentic" assessment.


Here are the three statements discussed in this post. 

1. The Assessment Is Appropriate

2. The Assignment Is Purposeful

3. The Assessment Promotes Understanding

Ness Crouch's curator insight, February 8, 2014 5:53 PM

Rigourous curriculum and assessment is important. These three points are ones that we are continuously focus on. A good read,

Daniel Rimmereid's curator insight, March 25, 2014 8:35 PM

This is a great resource that really describes clearly and concisely what makes a great assessment but it took it one step further by talking about rigor. The first point is that good assessments need to be appropriate. This talks about how the assessment needs to be about what students learned but more importantly it needs to talk about and address what the students learned in a challenging way. If the assessment is too easy then students will not be truly assessed on the material and thus the assessment will be weak. The second point is that assessment needs to be purposeful. It is good for your students to finish an assessment and for them to clearly see what they have produced from that assessment. The third point is that the assessment should allow students to come away with some deeper form of understanding on the topic. I think something that I have taken away from this article is that assessment can be a great tool for deepening students understanding and really giving them something to be able to look back and know that they have accomplished something.
