What's up folks! Hopefully you all have moved past any food induced comas from the Thanksgiving and are ready to be back in action! Today our blog focuses on creating assessments that measure your goal. If you need a refresher on goal setting view our previous blog below.
need to be challenged. Think about providing options that incorporate technology. Think about choices that vary response options (voice, typing, handwriting, creative expression). Keep in mind that there is no set number of options for students in how they can express their understanding. For some goals the options maybe fairly limited and for some goals the options may be endless. Consider also giving your students an open ended option where they can hear the non-negotiables of a goal and brainstorm their own ideas for how they can show their understanding.
The action & expression guidelines and checkpoints are your friend here. Have fun and be prepared to be surprised by what your students show you about themselves as you give them more autonomy.
