Gaming as Formative Assessment

  1. 1. Gaming as formative assessment: I am able to track the progress of my students by viewing their performances in class quizzes. Online quizzes are set as homework and students copy screen prints of their scores on a sheet of paper that they submit to me. 1. Quizzes/games. The following links are examples of some of the online quizzes that the students have benefitted from. I utilise these with boys either individually or in a group coming up to the Smartboard to attempt these interactives and then later for the boys to revise on their class wiki. Gaming also provides an opportunity for boys to play online games against each other in a competitive sense. The following links are examples that boys have played on the Smartboard in class. and Multiple choice questions and answers
  2. 2. 2. Non computer games: such as Choose 9 directive terms from the following 15 below. Account Analyse Critically Define Demonstrate Describe Discuss Distinguish Evaluate Explain Identify Justify Outline Assess Recommend. Draw up a table with three columns and rows and put a directive term in each of the 9 boxes on your bingo card Make sure you know what that word means because you need to know to win!! Shout BINGO when you have a line or a FULL HOUSE! Teacher reads out the definitions and MUST keep a record of the words used 3. Giving powerpoint templates to students and getting them to create their own games such as Who Wants To Be a Millionaire. The game on the next page is called Roaming Bingo which I used as a pretest to reveal students’ prior subject knowledge.

  4. 4. 1. Where there any questions which you thought had nothing or little to do with Geography? List these by number and discuss (later) with the teacher 2. Try to group some of the questions together under common themes (the teacher will discuss this with you). List these by numbers under a theme heading. Try to have between 3 and 6 groups. 3. The teacher will now talk to you about some possible groups which will simplify what Geography is about. Please list these below and now try to write numbers from the grid which might fit in each group.
