SAMR in Formative Assessment
STEP 3: Digital Assessment Discussion
After completing the (Google Forms as an Assessment) Google Form, please share your ideas on when you might use something like this in your own class.
- What use would something like this have for teachers and students?
- How might an environment like this improve or supplement your feedback practices?
- How would you use data from this type of assessment?
Please feel free to reply to others.
Google forms in the classroom can be very useful for a variety of different things in the classroom. One of the ways is to be used for assessment in all content areas. Also, it is a great way to use a checkpoint to see student learning. Lastly, a great way to do this would be to use it for students to visually see the data and how to change things. It is a great way for teachers to increase teacher feedback to students.
Students would be able to see their results immediately. Google Forms would give a teacher an immediate indication as to what students previously know about a subject and/or what they are retaining from the material being taught. I think students would find this engaging and exciting to see what their classmates think when the class is polled on a topic. I, also, believe that students may be a little more cautious with their answers before submitting them at the end.
I think that a google form could be used as an exit slip. It could give the teacher a good idea in just a few questions what each student is understanding before they leave the class.
It could also be used for a reflection or survey at the end of a project or unit as feedback on student learning and enjoyment of a project.
This is a great substitute for a paper/pencil form.
