Reflection: Routines and Procedures Unit 9 Big Quiz and Introduction to Nuclear Chemistry - Section 2: Unit 9 Big Quiz


As teachers we use testing programs that are provided to use from the district.  My district has been using DataDirector for the past 5 or so years, but is now switching to a new program called illuminate.  After going to a training for this new program I wanted to try it out with my students, but decided to do so with a big quiz rather than a test.  This way I was able to see how it worked without a high-stakes type of test on the line. 

There were several things that I liked about this program...

  1. First, I was able to print out both answer sheets and an exam for students using the testbank and answer sheet generators.
  2. Second I was able to instantly give students feedback because the computer scans the bubble sheet and gives students' responses.  I also was able to then go over the answers to the quiz with students to make sure that the computer graded their quizzes correctly.  Students really liked this aspect as well and enjoyed being able to get instant feedback on how they had done.
  3. Third, this program organizes student results in many ways including results by class (so I can easily enter into the grade book), results by question (so I can see which questions students struggled with the most and in this case was able to pinpoint #3 and #11), and overall results for the school (so I can compare how my students performed with other teachers and have a discussion about how to improve student learning).

Unit 9 Big Quiz and Introduction to Nuclear Chemistry

Unit 9: Unit 10: Nuclear Chemistry and Final Exam Review
Lesson 1 of 8

Objective: Students will be able to demonstrate their mastery of kinetics and equilibrium through taking a quiz as well as be able to describe the importance of nuclear reactions by reading an article, looking up vocabulary, and watching videos.

Big Idea: Nuclear processes such as fission, fusion, and radioactive decay involve the release or absorption of energy.
