Reflection: Student Self-Assessment Properties of Water, part 1 - Section 4: Independent Practice


Reviewing the "teacher-like" questions is quite useful for me as a teacher.  When a student writes all his or her "teacher-like"questions at DOK(depth of knowledge) level 1, I can correlate that students's questions with past performance on summative assessments in my class.  

The "teacher-like" questions that the students write serve as an indicator of the student's ability and ease working with the level of rigor used and needed to analyze science concepts. Unless it is an advanced class, expect many students to take the less rigorous option of DOK1 questions,  Some will even resort to True/False questions to avoid the contemplation needed to ask higher level thinking questions.  To eliminate the temptation, it might be wise to tell students that only one of the questions can be "true or"false and require them to explain why the question is false.
