Description

"Show Me What You Know”: Strategies for Effective Assessments

Led by​: Patricia Bauer and Craig Buszka


Have you adopted science or math Modeling strategies but struggled with developing assessment instruments that incorporate your new/modified approach? Would you like time to think about how to better assess your students understanding of content and their skill mastery? Would you like to collaborate with other teachers interested in honing their assessment writing skills? Would you like to share some questions you have written? Would you like feedback from teachers on how you might restructure or rephrase a question for an upcoming assessment?

This workshop will share strategies for helping students assess their own understanding of concepts in the STEM classroom. Explore different approaches to elicit responses from students that uncover their thought processes and encourage students to show what they know. Throughout the workshop we will look at examples of effective assessment instruments for a range of STEM disciplines, and also provide a space to workshop ongoing challenges and ideas specific to your classroom. We invite you to bring along a sample lesson plan or assessment rubric that you are actively designing or developing and would like to refine with feedback from workshop participants. Working in small groups, participants will develop a new assessment strategy to share and discuss. At the end of the workshop we hope you will have a collection of useful strategies and approaches that enlivens your teaching practice.



Pizza lunch for all at 1 pm!

Note: Please sign up for ONLY 1 workshop on this date not both; As these both workshops are 3 hours and run simultaneously from 10am to 1pm in separate rooms at Teachers College.

WHITEBOARDS & T-SHIRTS

Whiteboards are currently out of stock. We will post a notice on our website and in Eventbrite when we have more to sell – probably within the next 2-3 months. If someone with a car would volunteer to devote several hours to helping us get whiteboards, it would be a big help. You can volunteer by sending an email to info@STEMteachers.org.

You can still buy T-shirts at the workshop, but you must have the exact amount of cash ( $10 each).

PHOTOGRAPHS AND VIDEO RECORDINGS.

We take photographs and record video of our workshops in order to publicize a positive image of science teaching, and of STEMteachersNYC - a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. If you register, you are agreeing to be photographed and to have your voice and image video-recorded. You are also agreeing to relinquish all your rights to the photographs and video recordings.

If you do not wish to be photographed or video-recorded, you must inform us when you check in at the beginning of the workshop. We will take one photograph of your face so that we can erase your image if we happen to catch it by chance during the workshop, and we will do our best to avoid you. We would also appreciate your cooperation in positioning yourself at the edge of the group so as to help us avoid you.
