Something that in found interesting was the conversation in class about the bad mark being taken away if it brings down your average. I didn’t know schools did this, but i find it would be very beneficial to the students.
I really enjoyed the reading we were giving during class about “Formative Assessment in Seven Good Moves”. I found myself agreeing with the first two step or moves, prime students first, and pose good questions. All of the moves were very important, but when asked which one was least, my mind brought me to the last move, build your bins. I didn’t really understand it, until it was explained to me. After I came to the realization that they were all important, and depending on your views, one might appear more so than others.
`I could help but find myself laughing at the video we were shown at the end of the class. I know it was important and it did clear up a lot of things about summative, formative, and diagnostic assessments, the visual part, the characters of the video were too much to handle. I had a hard time not noticing the length of the characters arms, there computerized voices, their actions, etc… It was a good video for its information, but it was hard to watch and not to giggle at.
