Assessments for student's success

"Assessment is not about the teacher, it is about the student." (Lopez,2013)
Has my mindset been changed?
Considering the Questions
1. I like and find most of the assessments we use very helpful to me as a teacher. I truly feel I understand there purpose, and use each assessment tool as it was meant to be used.
2.As mentioned above the assessment helps me to see daily the progress of each student. not by testing but by watching them as they participate in the learning process.
3. There is one assessment that I feel is of no value. And we teachers call it just busy work to meet some ones paper trial.
4. I am very confident in the use of all my assessment tools. And am not afraid to ask for help when needed.
I used these questions to reflect on what I am doing and why. I think this reflection is an important part of being a teacher. I think I must continue to reflect on all aspects of my work. This will make me a better teacher. And assessment are a big part of my every day world. So I will keep these question around to remind me to do just that, remind me why it is important that the assessments I use are a useful tool for the growth of my students.
