    20 Ways To Provide Effective Feedback For Learning

    5 minute read
    Laura Reynolds says:
    by Laura Reynolds While assessment gets all the press, it is feedback for learning that can transform a student's learning. When feedback is predominately negative, studies have shown that it can discourage student effort and achievement (Hattie & Timperley, 2007, Dinham).
  • Milena Milicevic says:
    In this funny Buzz-feed article certain points can be reused and given to students for discussions. They will be able to identify themselves or other team members in certain situations and to hopefully learn how to improve their behavior and to communicate effectively and assertively.
  • Milena Milicevic says:
    Some of the forms can be used by teachers; some are for peer-reviewing meaning that young team members write feedback to each other.
  • Milena Milicevic says:
    During these 30 team building activities, which are listed in this file, a teacher can overlook the level of discussion and participation of individual students to see how they usually interact with each other. Chances are that they will assume the similar dynamics when they prepare the team project outside of the classroom hours.

    Carnegie Melon's Research about The Methodology of Assessing Group Work

    20 minute read
    Milena Milicevic says:
    Carnegie Melon's article is quite straight forward, ''All of the principles of assessment that apply to individual work apply to group work as well.'' The right approach for teacher's goals and context are described while the samples of group project assignment tools are provided on the page, as well.
  • Milena Milicevic says:
    Shannon Ciston advocates that team work will build process skills in learners, yet educators should focus more on the process and not the end result solely.
  • Milena Milicevic says:
    14 pages in this kit compiled by education authority website, Edutopia can be an excellent starting point for you when you assign a team project to young learners. Every page bursts with excellent links and smart methodologies. Last but not least, this material is also a checklist for you when the time for grading comes.
  • Milena Milicevic says:
    This detailed and well-organized article looks at team projects before the evaluation and grading phase - it brings back educators and researchers to the fundamental questions of why using project-based learning in the first place? Six steps in this learning are clearly explained: Start with the Essential Question; Design a Plan for the Project; Create a Schedule; Monitor the Students and the Progress of the Project; Assess the Outcome; and Evaluate the Experience.
