Transcript

  • 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. Through nonjudgmental questioning, the teacher leads the student to construct new understanding and acquire new skills.
  • 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. It should not be used as an accountability tool that makes some students feel good about themselves and causes others to give up.
  • 5. Thank you for watching!
