Methods and Strategies: The Reflective Assessment Technique
Kennedy, Cathleen; Long, Kathy; Camins, Arthur
Science and Children, v47 n4 p50-53 Dec 2009
Teachers often rely on student questions, their observations of students at work, and their own intuition to monitor how well students are learning. However, the authors found that teachers learn more about their students when they use the four-step Reflective Assessment Technique that draws on guided teacher reflections to inform classroom decision-making. This article describes this new and efficient technique for evaluating in-class student work. (Contains 4 figures.)
