Reflection: Rigor Types of Cells Part 1 - Section 6: Independent Practice


You might be looking at this quiz and thinking..."wow that is a pretty low DOK or Bloom's level!  I thought we were supposed to write questions to get to critical thinking."  This is correct.  This quiz is extremly low level.  It only assesses whether students reached the very beginning levels of understanding.  However, that is the purpose of the quiz on this day.  I always try to assess at a low level on the day we get information to see whether students are ready to move on to deeper levels.  Generally, my lessons go in this order

1.  Discovery

2. Direct Instruction

3. Follow-up

4. Problem solving

5 Wrap up

This would be an example of a quiz that I give after the Direct Instruction.  On the Follow- up day I start with Independent work.  This structure allows me to pull a small group of students that are either struggling with skills or content.

The results of this quiz showed that students were mainly profficient at these basic ideas.

Per 3 Science- 91%

Per 5 Science -84%
