We received several thoughtful responses to this week’s question: What’s the best way to measure student performance?
Peter Henry of Edmonds referred to his own experience as a math instructor. Part of his response: “Assessment is a natural part of teaching and learning, and it functions best as an integral part of the classroom. Every time I give an assignment and read or listen to student responses, that is an example of assessment, and I modify my practices accordingly.”
