Self Check Techniques

Examine Your Assessment Tools

One technique you can use to inform your teaching is to examine your assessment tools. You might consider the various assessment techniques you use, how often you use them, or what kinds of questions you tend to ask. Your assessment tools are likely a good indication of what you want students to learn.

Tips for examining assessment tools:

  • Don't look only at written assessments (e.g., tests and quizzes) -- be sure to consider rubrics, journals, presentations, embedded assessment, and the like.
  • You might have a conversation with your students to find out their thoughts about how you assess their learning.
