Reflection: Quizzes Foiling Holden: Comparing and Contrasting Characters - Section 2: Summative Assessment: Vocabulary Quiz


As I have noted previously, student vocabulary building is an aspect of education I am seeking to increase, both to prepare students for standardized testing, but also to provide them a wider lexicon to use in speech and writing, as I try to teach to the whole student. This quiz will both allow me to see how effective the Vocabulary Finders have been at imparting knowledge to their peers, as well as how much students have been studying on their own. I may adjust vocabulary instruction from here, either retesting students on these terms or changing the specifics of the Vocabulary Finder role.
