## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Manipulating Rational and Irrational Numbers - Section 5: Exit Ticket: Writing Idea Organizer on Rational and Irrational Numbers

Collecting and analyzing evidence of student learning is a complicated task for all teachers. I like to try and diversify the types of assessment or evidence that I collect and value in my class, from Class Notes to an Entry Ticket to a Student Writing Sample.

From my perspective, different types of evidence help me, as a teacher, see various strengths and areas of improvement for students in my class. Diversifying assessments and evidence of learning also can help my students by shining the light on a wider range of valued skills and concepts compared to the traditional set of skills that tests and quizzes tend to assess over and over again.
