Learning through assessmentOne of the things that David Nicol, from theUniversity of Strathclyde, said in his excellentpaper Ten Principles of Good Assessment andFeedback Practice was -It is essential to deliver high qualityfeedback to help learners self correctBut you can only do this if you have the rightinformation about a students performance 9. How can we achieve this?Some old methods of getting feedback fromstudents O Whiteboard with pensO Flip chart paperO Verbal feedback from just one or twostudents. 10. I dont like whiteboards and pens!In two years of teaching I have only used awhiteboard or flipchart paper once ! 11. Whats wrong with this method?O Information is wiped from the whiteboardand lost.O Flip chart information is difficult to share.O Quiet students dont give verbal feedback.O Only one or two students may give ananswer.O Its difficult to assess whether ALLstudents have the correct answer to aquestion. 12. Low participation rate is NOT good !Why? One student with the correct answer can fool us intothinking the whole class knows the answer ! 13. What to do?O Give students thinking time.O Everyone needs to work things out forthemselves.O Create a fun environmentO Get everyone involved.O Record student feedback for use outsidethe classroom 14.
