4. Integration In Action:

Emphasis on Task Design: Assessment is the foundation of the blended learning classroom.  As you learn more and more about the apps and sites that are available you will see that collecting data will become an integral part of your classroom.  This data can enrich your instruction as it will be a path for what students know and identifying learning gaps.  In the videos below, look for two things.  First, what tools are being used?  Secondly, how are the tools being used to inform instruction?

As you view the 3 videos, think about these questions:

  • What are your current formative assessment practices?

  • How do formative assessments differ from summative assessments?

  • How often do you complete formative assessments?  How do you use the data?

  • How are the assessments different in the videos?  Which assessments would be considered summative?

  • How would the summative assessments be graded?

  • Have you tried any of these tools before?  If so, would you use them again?
