Reflections

  • Have you been frustrated with the struggles to give meaningful feedback?
  • How confident are you with your understanding of every student’s learning progress?

What can you do tomorrow

  • Guide your students with reflections after an assessment which can help you understand if the assessment is helpful. Few steps to take:
    • Ask students what they think the assessment is asking them to do?
    • Ask students what steps they took to complete it? How they overcame the struggles?
    • Students find the evidence to support the standards they achieved.
    • Students grade themselves by evidence
    • Reflect what they would do differently next time.
