200 - Determining What Children Know: Dynamic vs. Static Assessment

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Most forms of assessment, even when they are called “formative”, do little but look at children’s answers and their capacity to write explanations of how they got them. Genuine assessment needs to be more dynamic: it needs to capture where a child is on the landscape of learning for a given topic by focusing on the progressive development of strategies, big ideas, and ways of modeling over time. It needs to focus on where a child is on the landscape and what is just out of reach, but coming into view. In this session, we will look at assessment using the landscapes as a lens and gathering data through: 1) portfolios; 2) formal items designed to capture how children are mathematizing; and, 3) the wise and careful use of digital environments.
