Assessment in constructivist classroom

  1. 1. (Jacqueline Grennon) Brooks and (Martin G.) Brooks (1993) describe what assessment in a constructivist classroom looks like: Rather than saying "No" when a student does not give the exact answer being sought, the constructivist teacher attempts to understand the student's current thinking about the topic.
  2. 2. Through nonjudgmental questioning, the teacher leads the student to construct new understanding and acquire new skills.
  3. 3. Constructivists believe that assessment should be used as a tool to enhance both the student's learning and the teacher's understanding of the student's current understanding.
  4. 4. It should not be used as an accountability tool that makes some students feel good about themselves and causes others to give up.
  5. 5. Thank you for watching!
