Day 34: Reassessment Day

20131022_091108

Today I built a reassessment day into our schedule. I have 74 kids in this class (in 3 sections), and I printed out 55 reassessments on 4 different learning targets! The  gains they showed were impressive; approximately 80% increased their score and the other 20% showed some gains in understanding even though it didn’t change their score (I grade 2,1,0). More on my grading system coming soon on learningandphysics.wordpress.com!

    Would you mind sharing how you do your reassessments? I’m pretty comfortable with the SBG system I’ve established with the exception of reassessments. Right now I simply “build in” reassessments, by keeping learning goals on quizzes for multiple weeks and then again on a unit assessment. If that still doesn’t work for a student I offer them the opportunity to video themselves reworking a problem they made mistakes on.

    • It’s been a mashup of a bunch of options for kids. They come in 30 minutes before school starts and do them then, I send them to study hall teachers, we have a 25 minute advisory every day and the shorter quizzes can get done then. I have also left them in the Media Center for our MC specialist to proctor after school (I’m usually in different buildings in the afternoon as I work in teaching and learning as a tech integrationist). I also do what you do and build them in, and I plan to spiral and come back to them throughout the year with the current score always replacing all previous. I’m hoping to finish my general post about how I do SBG in the next week or so as well.
