Approaches to Formative Assessments in the Classroom
Date: Tuesday, February 19th, 2013
Time: 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Location: Malpass Library, 3rd Floor Computer Classroom
Instructor(s): Diane Hamilton-Hancock, Leaunda Hemphill
Description: For many courses, assessment consists primarily of exam and quizzes. As an assessment approach, these techniques are insufficient, providing instructors with limited, single-lens feedback on students’ learning at a given point in time. Best practices research recommends the use of multiple assessment tools for determining what it is that students know and can do. This session focuses on the use of multiple formative assessments (such as student blogs, journals, knowledge probes, and discussions), for assessing learning that allows instructors to readily modify their teaching based upon ongoing student feedback.
