Week 5 Discussion 1
Share your perspective on Lopez’s quote and statement above. Describe how your mindset has changed or been validated
Reading over chapter 8 had some very informative information that I really never thought about until I read the chapter. Lopez's quote “Assessment is not about you as a teacher; it is about your students” (Lopez, 2013 p.97). That is a statement that is very much true, assessments are made to help teachers decide whether students are learning the information given to them, if the students need more help an any area, or just to help the teachers with what to teach the student's. Assessments can be quizzes, tests, or anything of that nature. So I believe that Lopez's quote is on point and needed to remind teachers as to why assessments are really given.
