Four Alternate Ways to Assess Your Students

Engage learners with Brainpop, Flipgrid, Adobe Spark, and Wakelet

Assessing student progress can be boring for both the student and the teacher. Throughout my twelve years of teaching, I have found that I cannot always accurately assess what my students learned from a topic because their learning isn’t shining through on a multiple-choice test or five-paragraph essay. While students may have grasped a great deal of the curriculum, they often have trouble showing what they know because it is not tapping into their desired learning styles.

         While multiple-choice tests and essay-based writing skills do have a purpose in the classroom, it is also possible to incorporate additional ways to assess students. Giving a variety of assessments will allow you to tap into different learning styles of all students giving you the ability to have a well-rounded perspective on your students.
