What I can take from this...
Lopez lists under “Defending our Assessment Practices” (p.98).
- Why are you participating in the assessments that you use with your students?
- Can you share in explicit detail the value that you find in each assessment?
- Do you participate in assessments that you find no value for students?
- Are you using an assessment you have no idea how to deliver, but are afraid to ask for help with?
I work with special needs students whom either cannot read or talk. So the teacher and I always help our students read their daily work and help them sound out different words to help them develop vocabulary words.
The value in each assessment is that each student masters different skills that they have not mastered before.
No, we always participate in every activity and daily work.
No. even if I have no idea what the topic is about I still deliver the material the best way I can. I am never afraid to do anything. When I learn something new I teach my students what I learn.
- In what ways have you succeeded/failed to make students your partner in assessment?
- I believe we fail but we succeed in the end.
