Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Word Wall: Biotechnology Terms from A to Z - Section 6: Evaluate


I never assess my students understanding of the terms through isolated vocabulary tests which promote memorization of words rather than genuine understanding of their meaning and role in the biotechnology industry. I find it much more effective to weave assessment of the terms from a particular lesson or unit into larger quizzes, exams, and performance tasks which makes the diagnostic more likely to be able to properly gauge the level of understanding students have of the intersection of many terms in biotechnology!
