Self and peer-assessments provide for the development of constructive criticism in a formative environment, allowing for reflection, clear thinking and motivation to improve.
This reinforces my understanding and appreciation for rubrics. They are an excellent tool and resource to both student and teacher in a multitude of ways.
I find it interesting to read about the differences between Norm/Criterion reference assessments. Makes me think a lot about State standardize testing, both the pros and cons of them.
I have learned the distinct differences between assessment and evaluation, as well as diagnostic, formative, and summative assessment. It is important to evaluate students periodically to assess their progress and also reassess your lessons plans when necessary.
This module of learning is very thought provoking. Our school is starting to develop online course content and I look forward to the many resources we can incorporate to assess learning and enhance it too.
I am always looking for ways to generate student engagement and enhance student motivation, interest, and performance. I will be using the suggestion of having my students develop rubrics to assess their learning and/or their peers' learning. It will be valuable to connecting the course outcomes to the project objectives and if they are working in groups, the assessment may also improve teamwork and cooperation.
Evaluating your rubrics for effectiveness is essential before you actually use it; however, I have found situations occur that throw a curve ball into the use. I wait to release grades until I have graded all students for fairness and consistency across the board. Sometimes I am actually lenient to the first students to help me not to be too strict in my assessments.
I found that peer assessments are effective to receiving feedback to help me make improvements to my rubrics.
What really resonated with me was that rubrics can be time consuming, but personally well worth the time to develop. When I have used them...I use trial and error to make improvements to my rubrics till I have factored all situations and circumstances.
my successe has come from max knowledge and im growing
