In this week’s “What Will You Keep this Fall?” video, we are talking with Dr. Laura Brown from the Chemistry Department about a few lessons she’s learned from this past year, and specifically about her use of low-stakes assessments. She has incorporated Quick Checks in each module, allows students to re-do parts of exams, and added peer-review activities on an assignment. She has evidence that student learning has improved, including reductions in typical achievement gaps.
If you have something to share—or know of a colleague who does—let me know, and we will set up an interview. To see all our “What Will You Keep”? videos, look for the WWYK tag in our blog.
