The assessment process is complex. There is no single, right way to assess as different subjects have their unique layers of complexities that include standards, benchmarks and expectations.
Assessing in a project-based STEM environment offers its own unique challenges and opportunities. Given all the different directions students may take their learning in, it’s hard to develop a consistent way to evaluate and assess a student’s work. Mike and Joyce have taken a few different approaches in their time teaching STEM finding out what works. They have come to the idea that the best assessments are driven by the students themselves.
We help our students use a variety of methods to create and present their own methods of assessments in different classes. Students are guided to create online portfolios, websites, reflections, videos, and other methods of presenting their work. This differentiation helps give a complete view of the student’s growth and journey as a learner in their STEM classes.
Mike and Joyce will present their methods, give examples, and help you develop a strategy that works for you and your students. Assessment doesn’t have to be difficult or challenging for students or teachers. It can be a fun creative process that shows the learner, and the stakeholders just how far they have come.
