AVID Corner


In today’s AVID Corner I want to share a quick reflection tool that teachers or parents can use to assess understanding. DLIQ is a an acronym that stands for:

Did/Do - What exactly was it that I did in class today?

Learned - What was it that I learned that I can take away with me?

Interesting - What did I find especially interesting about the lesson?

Questions - What questions do I still have remaining after completing this lesson?

This is a quick assessment to see what exactly was retained by students and, based on their questions, what areas might need to be revisited or explored in more depth. Teachers can use DLIQ as an “Exit Ticket” at the end of a lesson or unit. Parents can get students to do a DLIQ to see what they have been learning about at school.

Below is an example of a DLIQ that a student completed after learning about Learning Styles and Preferences. I have also included a blank DLIQ form for you to use as you would like.
