Transcript of Assessing Student Learning

Why is assessment important?
-Gauge Learning
-Allows for direct feedback
-Students can learn how to assess their own learning
Don't Be Fooled!
Just because a student:
-Answers yes or no questions like: Do you understand this? Is this clear? Do you have any questions about this?
-Gives positive comments like: I understand it now. Oh, I see how to do that. Yes, that concept is clear to me.
-Has positive body language like: smiling, head nodding, conveying confidence, expressions of relief, or expressions indicating “the light bulb” has come on
doesn’t mean they really understand. It is important to use assessment techniques to ensure they really understand and aren’t just telling you what you want to hear.

-Provide written focus questions that draw students’ attention to what you will cover during the session and what they will be expected to understand at the end of the session.
