Sharing assessment & grading strategies that help students learn
If you are looking for some Assessment FOR Learning principles for discussion and reflection, check out this following blog post from Ken O'Connor.
As educators, we must be in a continuous state of professional growth through personal reflection. No matter how long you've been in education, this process is greatly aided by contemplating the ideas of others.
Ken O'Connor's ideas have been well thought out and well-researched. My guess is that for many of you they will be somewhat "mind-blowing" as they are definitely outside the norm of schools as we know it. So much of what we do is the result of institutional inertia - but is it best practice? Maybe or maybe not.
Follow the link below; read the short post; be challenged; reflect on your practices, and never stop growing professionally.
Thanks, Ken, for a thought-provoking post.
