Assessing Students and Yourself Using the One Minute Paper and Observing Students Working Cooperatively.
Panitz, Theodore; Panitz, Patricia
This paper describes two approaches to the evaluation of student learning skills and learning styles: the "One Minute Paper" and classroom observation of students in cooperative learning groups. The One Minute Paper developed, by R. Weaver and H. Cottrell (1985), is a form completed by students at the end of class that asks students to indicate the most significant thing they learned that day and whether they have remaining questions. Completing this exercise encourages students to reflect and review, and it gives teachers immediate feedback on student understanding and problems. The One Minute Paper can be varied by asking students to work in pairs or groups and review each other's answers. Cooperative learning activities provide teachers with opportunities to observe students interacting. One way to approach classroom observation is to look for a hierarchy of abilities similar to Bloom's taxonomy. In this way, the stage of development and learning style of each student can be determined. By the time a test is taken, the instructor knows who will perform well and who will not. (SLD)
