Educators and students are busy. With all the activity happening in a classroom, it is imperative that teachers know what activities are effective for learning. In this course, teachers will learn to create tools to measure and evaluate the efficacy of activities in their classrooms and to ensure the outcome is linked to student achievement. Items to be considered include multiple choice questions, applicable rubrics, and measurable open response items. By evaluating these measures, both teachers and students get feedback throughout the learning process. Teachers can use these results to check for understanding and plan instructional adjustments; students can use the results to monitor their own learning.
By the completion of this session participants will be able to:
I would place the professional development that has been provided at the top of the list in terms of quality, in terms of relevancy as well as engagement of the teachers and helping them see the possibilities of their students.
