Overcoming the Assessment Practices of our Youth | All Things Assessment

Interesting article about how difficult it can be to overcome our mindset of past assessment practices we went through as students.

As Rick Stiggins states, “You can enhance or destroy students’ desire to succeed in school more quickly and permanently through your use of assessment than with any other tools you have at your disposal.” Through the practice of using best assessment practices with teachers, mindsets began to change about what best assessment practice really means in the development of our young students. Not only did teachers value their own learning through this process, but I believe their desire to succeed personally and with their students was forever enhanced.
