Hybrid Instruction and Assessment

Ongoing assessment is an integral part of instruction. Entry level, progress monitoring, formative. and summative assessments of student learning can be recorded easily through the electronic portfolio process. Since students are already submitting assignments digitally, discussing issues and collaborating with colleagues using asynchronous and synchronous communication tools, and creating electronic presentations, saving and submitting artifacts that demonstrate learning can be useful in documenting progress toward course objectives. Self-reflection can provide a rich picture of a student's growth of understanding of essential concepts. Students can demonstrate their ability to make connections between assignments and standards. I have started another blog on electronic portfolios for teacher education.
