It's important to be able to measure how your students are doing so that you can identify gaps and know how to move forward with your teaching. Maybe you conduct a daily quiz or assign homework after teaching a new topic to measure how well your students are retaining the information. Describe some ways that you do this.
"Every morning we have a quiz over the material from the day before. It's a participation grade, but it helps me to tell how well the students are understanding the material. It's been effective for me to make adjustments and know what areas to focus more time on."
"While completing my Bachelor's Degree in Education, we explored a variety of methods for student assessment which included concept maps, exams of varying kinds, and assessing students in group work. Are there any types of assessments you prefer to use at your school?"
"Aside from tests, I believe that student learning can be assessed through group work. I like to see which students rise in group projects and which ones tend to float, waiting for others to do the work or come up with the answers. From there, I can guide those students."
"My lessons include an entry task, a group based projects, and exit tasks. The entry and exit tasks are formative assessments. It gets the lesson started and gives me a sense of a student's general understanding of a new topic, or with an exit task, I can gather what the student's learned at the end of the lesson."
This answer shows that you are controlled in your assessments, and very structured. Well done!
