Reflection: Performance Tasks Eyes on You! - Section 2: Guided Assessment


Performance assessments are much more useful than a paper-pencil task. They offer students a more realistic way of showing their understanding of concepts. In a perfect world, I would have students all have their own eye ball and conduct an assessment by dissecting the eye again and talking through each structure. However, this would be overly time-consuming and expensive. Also, not all students will enjoy the dissecting process. By offering them a chance to complete this two-dimensional model, students who do not enjoy the dissection, may have the opportunity to show their learning in a learning mode more suited to their learning style.
