Assessing learning without a test
from Edutopia (commentary)
Jessica Smith, a contributor for Edutopia, writes: "If you teach in a high school setting, it seems natural that after students learn, you assess, but does assessing always mean giving tests? When I was in school, the answer was yes. However, we can challenge our students far more than any test can because tests are often meant to have students regurgitate information they have learned and don't allow them to insightfully connect with and reflect on a text."
