Checking for understanding: Dipsticks

  1. 1. Teaching vs Learning
  2. 2. Teaching and Learning • Write down every teaching activity anyone in your group has ever used in class • What are the best teaching activities you have used? • How do you know that the students learnt something?
  3. 3. Measuring Learning (not teaching) KNOW THY IMPACT (Hattie) • How do you measure your impact? • How frequently do find out? • Are you able to respond?
  4. 4. Common methods of ‘knowing your impact’ • Summative assessment – tests, assignments • Formative assessment – quiz, • Class questioning • Low student achievement on reports • Doesn’t leave you time to respond to student gaps • Students with gaps often avoid questions
  5. 5. ‘Dipsticks’: Strategies for checking for understanding regularly • Look at your teaching activities: • Which activities allow you to check understanding easily and quickly in class? (circle or asterix them) • Add some ‘dipsticks’ • Eg Thumbs up, down, sideways • Green card, red card • Kahoot, PollEv, Google forms, etc • Post-it note questions. https://www.edutopia.org/blog/dipsticks-to-check-for-understanding-todd-finley
  6. 6. Curriculum Teams • Discuss: • Do you regularly check for understanding during each lesson? • What dipsticks do you use? (share) • What dipsticks could you add (choose 2-3) • Next CT – report on your use of the new dipsticks
