Assessment Challenges

Rich, engaging, authentic learning cant be measured by multiple choice tests.

Large class sizes make it challenging to engage in one-on-one conversation with students frequently enough.

10

Evidence of student thinking during the learning process can be hard to document with traditional tools.

11

Collecting journals, notecards, post-its, quizzes, projects, etc. can create a logistical challenge!

12

Some students dont express their best thinking in writing, especially young students and students with special learning needs.

13

What does the iPad bring to the assessment process?

Assessment on the iPad is:


rich varied multimodal embedded more frequent more personal student-driven collaborative/peer-enhanced efcient shareable
