My Assessment Context
I live and work in Italy our government is promoting with a lot of energy. Competence Based Learning. Schools are investing in course about assessment but I note many difficulties to proceed and to change existing systems. School innovation and different assessment go together. This year I went into a crise because I realy feel and recognize that the actual way of assessment in my Istitute doesn't corrispond with actual needs...I'm obliged to prepare my pupils fort these assesments and it costs me double time. I tried to share my opinions and feeling. Some teachers understand others don't bother so much about... I trying out new modules, and this year my pupils created several 'compiti autentici'. I feel that I need to learn to make better rubrics, here for I started a collection on Pinterest, I 'm studying how other teahers aroundthe world en face this problem and I discovered some tools during my longlife learning training. ( Thanks also to the Courses of the EUROPEAN SCHOOLNET) My pupils are enthusiast and I'm conviced they learned much deeper and not only they are more consious about the skills the have and what to do to increase them.
A TeachMeet is an informal way of sharing ideas amongst teachers. It's similar to a webinar except that you, the participants, are the speakers. Take a look at the video below to get an impression of how a Teachmeet works.
The 12 speakers have been selected from the numerous applications received last week. All speakers get a maximum of 3 minutes each to present their idea, tool, resource, etc.
4.2 Embedding Assessment into PBL
Assessment as part of PBL should not only come at the end but should be seen as a learning activity that is embedded throughout the PBL process.
4.3 Peer Assessment for PBL
Critical Friends Protocol
PADLET DISCUSSION: Since I followed the ESNA Courses, the pratice of peer assesment in my classroom increased. I noticed that my students are very critical ab severe. Together we can learn to see things in different ways. I'm convinced peer assessment stimolates critical thinking and involve the students more in their learning process. It's very important to stimolate them in good comunication skills, in being respectful, attentive and how to motivate each other writing or giving an oral a peerview. That why I loved the last video about the Critical Friends Protocol!
Thank you Anthippi Harou!
4.4 Creating & Using Rubrics for PBL Assessment
As collaboration and project-based learning become preeminent ways of teaching and learning, many teachers struggle with how to evaluate these types of lessons. Traditional methods of evaluation, which have many flaws on their own, are not well-suited for interdisciplinary, multi-modal learning. Teachers need ideas for encouraging students, providing meaningful feedback, and setting students up for success.
