Reflection: Continuous Assessment Slow and Rapid Changes - Section 3: Evaluate


From the plickers assessment, 95% of my students could identify different slow and rapid changes.  I did learn from this activity that my students need much more practice reading for information.  Students had a difficult time referring back to the computer text to locate answers.  I realized that this is not a skill I have them practice. I will be planning some reading lessons in which students are able to practice this skill.
