Classroom Assessment

Come learn about Classroom Assessment with my #PME827 students!

I’ve often said that the ability to implement effective classroom assessment is a secret superpower that all effective teachers share.

Starting on Monday, July 6, 2020, my students and I will begin a seven-week course of study on effective classroom assessment: PME 827–Planning and Implementing Effective Classroom Assessment. It’s an introductory, graduate-level course which surveys the literature on classroom assessment.

Join us as we take a deep dive into the literature and explore key concepts and practices associated with effective classroom assessment. I’ll be taking our exploration to Twitter, so follow along by using the hashtag #PME827. Each week, I’ll share with you one key idea that we’d be studying. I’ll also be tweeting out links to key articles you should know about!

If you have questions, don’t be afraid to tweet me @chiyanlam!


Integrating Clickers into Assessment for Learning

In this presentation, King (@ygk) and I (@chiyanlam) considered how K-12 classroom teachers might integrate the use of student response systems (e.g. TurningPoint, i>clickers) into their daily teaching and assessment practices within the Assessment for Learning framework.

This presentation was given to teacher candidates enrolled in the B.Ed. teacher education program at Queen’s University on February 6, 2012, as part of the Lunch ’n Learn Classroom Assessment series.
