Reflection: Performance Tasks Portrait of a Leader in Biotechnology (Part II) - Section 3: Evaluate


Rank and Reason activities can be used for effective formative or summative assessment! I want to believe that I have provided my students access to rich student-centered assessments in the past however I am not confident that my traditional exams and quizzes can come close to the critical thinking that I observe when my students discuss a topic, argue their viewpoint, justify their position, and defend their stance using NextLesson's rank and reason platform. Based on the number of online devices your classroom has on hand students can work in groups or independently.
I prefer for my students to use this as both a personal or independent reflection and an assessment so I have students work alone. Before I had adequately technology in my classroom I had students rotate through a station of about 3-4 laptops. The activities are designed to take one class period and would be worth he investment if limited technology meant having to stretch the actiivity over multiple days! Students are able to compare choices to others or the class average and this meets both Common Core and NGSS standards and goals!
