*Assessment Tools/Questioning

*Assessment Tools/Questioning | Assessment Resources | Scoop.it
When we help students learn to ask thoughtful, curious, and authentic questions we get a glimpse into what they are learning.  The $10,000 question is how to help them learn to ask good questions. ...

Via Tibshirani
Joni Galbreath's insight:

I remember many of us had questions or concerns about HOW to ask questions. Questions are a HUGE part of ASSESSMENT! This article provided some good insight on questioning as well as a list of references that can help with this topic.


*Sidenote- one good thing about using the internet for research is that it is usually up-to-date. The list of books/articles mentioned here are relatively new, most recent from 2014 and the oldest from 2008.

This too. Is great for providing what questions to ask and how to encourage the student interaction through questions. As a teacher we have to encourage students to dig deeper than just the who, what, where, when, why, and how questions. students need to think on a higher level, which this website helps with creating questions along those lines.

*Assessment Tools - Classroom Posters - Modern Twist

*Assessment Tools - Classroom Posters - Modern Twist | Assessment Resources | Scoop.it
Joni Galbreath's insight:

Love bringing pop culture and technology into the classroom! This is a modern twist on the "Exit Cards/Slips" Have the students tweet something they learned, or something they still have questions about!

Joni Galbreath's insight:

What I really like about this website is teachers are able to add their own lists to assess their students performance on spelling/vocabulary. Great tool for differentiation. 

 

There is also an app for mobile devices! (The app & website are free, there are other features available for a premium).

*Teacher/Student Tools - Today's Meet

Joni Galbreath's insight:

Ok, so I think this site is pretty neat if your classroom has the technology readily available. Visit todaysmeet.com, name your room, pose your questions to the room and allow students to answer the questions by following the link provided by you. The students join your room by adding their names and clicking "join". Then students will see the question(s) and be able to respond. I think this site would be useful if the question has many parts, or if you would like students to be able to respond to other responses as well.

 

Check out my room!  https://todaysmeet.com/AssessYou

*Teacher Tools - RCampus

Welcome to RCampus. Login or become a member of RCampus. Membership is free. Gain access to a number of faculty and student services, course management, free book exchange, clubs websites, study groups, jobs, tutors, classes, etc.
Joni Galbreath's insight:

I will use this site to build, assess, and share rubrics. This site also allows for collaborative work on rubrics, as well as the creation of other  assessments from existing rubrics. I like how this tool is more tech savvy than some of the other rubric creators, you can use other devices, i.e. an Ipad,  to score rubrics easily. Some extra services are available for a premium, but the rubric/assessment creators are free!

*Assessment Tools/Feedback

*Assessment Tools/Feedback | Assessment Resources | Scoop.it

Via Tibshirani
Joni Galbreath's insight:

I really like this list, especially #9 & #20.

 

Many times teachers will make your work bleed (red pen marks) because they are trying to correct EVERY error. #9 suggests that teachers should focus on one skill at a time. I think that for most students this is a great idea!

 

#20 suggests that students should be allowed to provide feedback too! It suggests using some kind of anonymous grading system (like our end of course evaluations) for the students to say what they like/dislike about a particular lesson. I would like to hear about a class that has used this technique because I think it can either be a really good thing OR a really bad thing.

Tibshirani's curator insight, March 13, 2014 7:17 AM

The importance is to give students time to apply feedback and be able to explain  its application.

*Assessment Tools - Classroom Posters - Brain Dumps

*Assessment Tools - Classroom Posters - Brain Dumps | Assessment Resources | Scoop.it
Joni Galbreath's insight:

This chart offers several quick and easy formative assessments. I particularly like  "Brain Dumps" because it allows students time to reflect upon the concepts/ideas they have just been introduced. I also like how it allows the students the opportunity to "turn to your partner", I think it really does something when kids can say their ideas out loud to someone. This helps them gather their thoughts and make connections.

*Student Tools - Cool Math

*Student Tools - Cool Math | Assessment Resources | Scoop.it
Cool Math 4 Kids has cool math lessons, cool math games and fun activities. We have free online flash cards to print out, cool math practice games, online calculators and lessons for addition, subtraction, times tables, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals and more.
Joni Galbreath's insight:

In Portage, schools frequently use this website. My daughters, who both despise math, love to play games on this site. This is a great tool for teachers, parents and students. Teachers can assign a topic, and students can play games for that topic, for example, addition, subtraction, fractions, etc. Not only can the students play math games, they can also play geography, science, and spelling games too!

This website is really cool! It allows teachers, students, AND parents to create quizzes about any topic. The cool thing about this is you can incorporate your questions into one of their pre-existing games. Best of all.... It's FREE!!!

*Teacher Tools - Jeopardy

Create your own jeopardy template online, without PowerPoint. Or browse the pre-made templates created by other people!
Joni Galbreath's insight:

I am not sure how well elementary aged kids will respond to jeopardy style review sessions, but I really love them as a college student. Perhaps it's because my Block can be super-competitive. I really want to try this out on younger kids, hopefully they will enjoy this type of assessment as much as I do. This tool also seems a lot easier to use then Powerpoint : )

If you’re not an avid follower of #edchat on Twitter, you may be missing out on a great opportunity to learn about some new Web 2.0 tools that are currently being used in classrooms around the world. That’s because @chickensaltash posed a simple question to the PLN and there has been a huge swell of support …
Joni Galbreath's insight:

I included this site because it includes many of the tools we have used as students @PNC. Wordle, Wikis, etc. I like how people are able to "add" new items to this list as well. I have sent in a request to add fakeposters.com to the list.

Christina Gasaway's curator insight, April 13, 2014 11:08 PM

This tool is a great resource to have because it not only includes a wide variety of Web 2.0 resources within it, but within those resources are ones for all age ranges. It's a "one stop shop" for starting points on web based assessment ideas.
