Reflection: Performance Tasks Nuclear art exhibition - Section 6: Debrief


My chemistry class is characterized by many tests and lab reports. However, this assignment reminds me of the importance of multiple assessment methods.

The first thing that stands out is the joy that many students felt while doing this project. For some students, creating art is a more joyous event than taking a test or writing a lab report.

Second, some students consistently score in the average range on these types of traditional assessments, but might actually score with high marks on an alternative assessment, which is an important for these types of students’ self-esteem.

Finally, I know that because we were creating an exhibit, students had a different outlook about the quality of their work. It was not just me they were performing for; it was the entire school community. They knew that the work had to be high quality, and most students rose to this challenge.
