Reflection: Continuous Assessment "Lesser than Macbeth but Greater" Act 1.3 and 1.2 - Section 6: Poll Everywhere: Assessing Student Learning


Too often students view assessment as a trick, one designed to show a teacher what the students don't know. However, assessment should be a way for teachers to monitor and adjust their practice. That's something the open-ended question format available on Poll Everywhere makes possible. For students w/out a cell phone, the teacher can give post-its and collect nameless responses.

One think to watch out for, however, is students who post inappropriate remarks. To stem the possibility, I tell students if they want more they'll be appropriate in their responses. That will work well for almost all students.
