Reflection: Performance Tasks Eye Balls On-A-Stick - Section 3: Assessment


I decided to use cake pops not only for motivation purposes, but also as a novel way for students to represent their understandings. So far, I have asked them to render drawings and diagrams of the eye in a two-dimensional setting. However, this task asks them to think outside the box and more fluently about the different parts of the eye and its function in filtering and processing light.
