Reflection: Unit Exams Waves and Wave Phenomena Test - Section 1: Unit 6 Test: Waves and Wave Phenomena


I found that for this test, my students' confidence level ended up matching their grade. As I walked around during the lab during the past two class periods and asked students questions, I was able to evaluate how prepared they were for the test. As I graded the tests, I noticed the students whom I felt had low confidence in the material ended up doing poorly and those whom I felt had high confidence ended up doing great. I am still not sure what I would do to improve confidence in students, but I think that is an important aspect that sometimes I overlook when assessing students. I think that students' performance throughout the unit was reflected clearly on the test since the learning targets were assessed formatively with checkpoints during the lessons leading up to the test and then assessed summatively on the test with similar types of questions.

Big Idea: The velocity of a wave can be determined by multiplying the wavelength times the frequency or by dividing the distance the wave travels by the time it takes to travel a that distance.
