First curiosity question:
Is it effective assessment if teacher assess students by giving so much assignment and sometimes must be submitted with close deadline?
I am still curious with this fenomenon. because if we think again and carefully, this is not effective assessment. Because It does not give advantages not only for me (as teacher) but also for students. For teacher, teacher just assess from students’ worksheet and do not know their learning process (how they do and solve assignment). For students, most of students just do it (do not understand, why they have to do it?), they just think about how finish it quickly without learning process that teacher wants.
After I read the paper about effective assessment, there are so much materials how assess students effectively. But I am still confused with my curiosity question solution. Any one can help me? L
In my thinking, actually this method is enough good to assess students. Because not all students do it “asal selesai” but I am sure many students still do it with their own thingking (not only co-paste from their friends’ work), so I think it can be effective if teacher apply this method in suitable time and good class condition.
From paper of effective asssessment, I am quote sentence related to my question “Assessment not only documents what students know and can do, but also affects their learning and motivation”.
My second curiosity question,
Is it effective if teacher assess student by seeing their class activity (active or passive student)?
I think, It is not effective. Because as we know that each of student has different learning style and also has different time to learn something (slow thinking and fast thinking). So, we cannot generalize all students ability. It can be unfair to others who need much time to understand something. From in this case and after read paper of effective assessment, I learned that “assessment during instruction helps me (as teacher) set my teaching at a level that challenges students and stretches their thinking. It also helps me to detect which student need my individual attention”. I also learned tha “asking student in class, actually it’s effective assessment to make me easy to teaching my class and can stimulate their thinking and their inquiry, knowledge, and skill level. Great!!
