Assessment and Evaluation: Aspects of Teaching
Assessment and feedback are necessary components of the learning environment. The goal of assessment and feedback is to improve student learning; therefore, it must be closely linked to what is happening in the learning environment. Not to say that students should be tested every week but rather that assessment of learning should be an integrated and ongoing component of the learning environment. Students need regular feedback in many different forms from both the teacher and their classmates. I try to create opportunities for students to get feedback both through formal evaluative assessments, as well as through informal formative assessments.
