Sing a Song: Assess Student Learning
 
Spotlight student success. Share a story or sing a song around the campfire.
 
Find out what your students have learned. Give them a chance to share and reflect. Assessment isn't about testing and report cards. It should be about helping you and your students understand where you've been and where you still need to go to reach your learning outcomes.
 
Brainstorm alternative assessments to match your outcome and activity.
