Reflection: Checks for Understanding Self-Directed Day - Section 2: Pride Points Problem


The Pride Points events are really, stripped of their competitive nature, opportunities for me to do formative assessment of transferable skills. While some content is embedded within the problems, these challenges can be solved successfully through teamwork, clear communication, brainstorming, and general creative problem-solving. In the video reflection below, I review some of the traps that students fell into during this particular "event."
