50 Ways To Measure Understanding - TeachThought

50 Ways To Measure Understanding - TeachThought | Education | Scoop.it

"How do you measure what a student understands?

Not give them an assessment, score it, then use that score to imply understanding. Rather, how do you truly ‘uncover’ what they ‘know’–and how ‘well’ they know it?"

This process of retrieving makes the information more retrievable later; compared to simply studying by looking over your notes, if you practice retrieval you’re more likely to remember the information later, and also more likely to be able to use and apply the information in new situations.

Note-taking: A Research Roundup :: Jennifer Gozalez

Note-taking: A Research Roundup :: Jennifer Gozalez | Education | Scoop.it

"Every day, in classrooms all over the world, students are taking notes. I have my own half-baked ideas about what makes one approach better than another, and I’m sure you do too. But if we’re going to call ourselves professionals, we need to know what the research says, yes?

"So I’ve combed through about three decades’ worth of research, and I’m going to tell you what it says about best practices in note-taking. Although this is not an exhaustive summary, it hits on some of the most frequently debated questions on the subject.

"This information is going to be useful for any subject area—I found some really good stuff that would be especially useful for STEM teachers or anyone who does heavy work with calculations, diagrams, and other technical illustrations. Of course, there’s plenty here for teachers of social studies, English, and the humanities as well, so everyone sit tight because you’ll probably come away with something you can apply to your classroom."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

An exceptional summary of key research on the topic. Succinct practical, and with numerous links, this post is a must-read for every educator starting in about grade 4 up through graduate school and adult ed.

Highly recommended reading - and if you don't feel like reading, listen to the linked podcast version.  Not only does this article stress the value of note taking to learning and understanding, it provides several well outlined note taking strategies to try.

I find this article very helpful to all of us who are constantly users of youtube and english learners. Youtube channels are an amazing free source for learning. You can watch videos in your free times, while you are cooking, or doing other things. There are many youtube channels with different methodologies and content, but all of them have the same objective: teaching English.

From my personal experience youtube channels have helped me a lot in learning languages in a fun way, free, whenever you want. I sincerely recommend everyone to use them.
