Other than tests, how do you assess student learning?

"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."

Entry Level

"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."
