A new way to Assess?

Sometimes the best solution to a problem is the most simple solution.  Is this true of how we approach assessing our students?

In the following Ted Talk, Mark Barnes gives us his theory on education and assessment and has come up with “SE2R,” which has the following steps:

  • Summarize
  • Explain
  • Redirect
  • Resubmit



Mark’s theory does show an emphasis on formative assessment, which is important not only for students to assess their own learning, but can also help teachers to know how effective their course is.

Next week we will explore intelligence, which Mark touched on in this talk.  See you next week!
