Reflection: Qualitative Evaluations End of Year Assessment - Section 3: Assessment


After I graded the final exam, I looked at the work of students on individual questions to check for understanding. Looking at the individual work provides me with qualitative data, which I can use to make adjustments to my practice in the future.


On question 34, many students were able to use the correct trigonometric ratio, but they did not solve the question correctly. They forgot to factor in the initial height of 3 ft. Many students got question question 33 correct. They understood how to use Cavelieri's principle to explain why two stacks of quarters can have the same volume despite having different shapes.  Student work onquestion 38 shows me that students need more help finishing problems entirely. They are able to begin the question, but they don't fully answer the question. In question 36, I saw two different methods for proving the two triangles are similar. Some students wrote a paragraph proof, while others opted for a 2-column proof. One of the most difficult questions was the geometric modeling question, question 37. Only one student received full credit on this question. In the future, I will provide more opportunities for the students to solve multi-step, problem-based questions.
