Assessment For Learning

Key Strategies

Assessment Video

After watching the Assessment for Learning video, I found the five strategies and the suggestions to be very helpful for a teacher. Rystad (2013) noted, ""providing feedback the moves the student forward" and I find this to be the best strategy for any teacher regardless of the age of the child. It is important to provide children with feedback so they understand what they are doing correct and what they need to work on to get better. I feel that a successful K-Prep classroom is one that provides each individual child with engaging materials that are at each of their levels. I also liked when Rystad talked about the red, yellow, and green light concept. This is a great tool because you can use it with older children but you can also use it with younger children as well because it is such a simple concept for all ages to understand.


The test of a good teacher is not how many questions he can ask his pupils that they will answer readily, but how many questions he inspires them to ask him which he finds it hard to answer.
