It has been over 40 years since I was in high school- YIKES! Assessments have certainly changed. We have many more than we used to. It seems like we assess constantly in a formal manner and informally as well. In some ways this is good, others drain the students.
The inclusion of technology has broadened how we access and allows for more creativity in the style and type of assessment. Our questioning skills are stronger and we are focused on differentiation across the board. The rigor of many tests has increased.
I used to be the teacher that gave multiple choice tests using scantrons. I now alter the type of assessments I use from instant feedback MC from zip grade to the huge variety of ways to assess in formative to using google classroom/forms and hyperdocs.
I find that I am challenging myself as well as my students. We are all learning more about technology and stretching our minds to new ways to share, learn, and present information and knowledge.
