Use multiple strategies and activities to assess student readiness
1. Evaluation strategies consistent with course goals.
2. Provide feedback often
3. Make students continuously aware of progress
4. Assess in a variety of ways
5. Use rubrics
6. Grading policies should be easy to understand and clear
Re-evaluate my rubric; find if there are ways to clarify terms.
Create a formative assessment.
Examine the goals of lesson
1. Improves performance, monitors, defines expectation
2. Makes students think more about their work and peers through self-evaluation and peer assessments.
3. Reduces the amount of evaluation needed to be done by teachers. Clear, well-thought out rubrics does this.
4. Clear and easy to understand, and to articulate what students have learned.
Evaluation terms should clearly defined
Week 11 Assessment and Evaluation Lesson Revision
Below is my asynchronous lesson on speaking. Unlike traditional speaking activities this is designed for students to independently but through delayed feedback from the instructors and peers. To review these were steps used to create the lesson.
Week 8 – Identify and develop a need for the learn and then plan a lesson.
This past week I did research to better understand formative and summative assessment and rubrics. I created a checklist and added it for the first task of the lesson to help students manage themselves. For the second task, I revised my rubric for speaking. I tried to clarify the category of “sentence structure” by providing an example and highlighting the key requirements. Students will also use this to do peer reviews. After trying out several different tools for uploading the content, I decided to use Wix. There are a lot of nice features and it also supports SWF files. I personally didn’t use any interactive videos for this lesson but tried it out, and it does work with Captivate files. Wix is not an LMS, so on the downside, students cannot post their assignments.
