    Both Tim O'keefe and Virginia Lockwood shared wonderful techniques for
    assessment. The "Spy notebook " was my favorite idea. I try to look at each
    child through a variety of lenses. I am a kid watcher and often take notes
    during classroom science inquiry. I liked the idea of sharing the notes with
    the students in order for them to improve their learning. So often I look at
    these notes o help me create experiences to improve a weak area. Why not
    allow the students to see these notes and take ownership of the areas to
    improve as well as the areas that they are doing great!
    I also feel that assessment is a great feedback tool. We as teachers and
    learners should constantly be getting and giving feedback to improve.
    Another great tool is the gift of self-evaluation. If you can assess your
    own learning using a rubric than you can also improve in your weaker areas,
    because you already know what needs to be done.

    After viewing this session, I started allowing peers to use rubrics and
    assess each other. The students handled this task with kindness and honesty.
     Indeed the students in my classroom used this process as a learning
    experience. Several students told me that by being able to assess someone
    else allowed them to assess themselves in a whole different light.
