Hello Everyone--

I am linking from this page to the handout I did for assessment. You'll see: it's not fancy. You can be fancy, but you don't have to be. Remember what I said: If someone was walking down the street and asked you about your topic, you'd whip out this handout and hand it to them. They could read it. And then they'd sort of be experts at it and be able to have a conversation about your topic and look pretty smart.

So, some things to say about the handout:

1) I don't really quote many critics. You could quote more from your article, but I was just doing this to show you. I tried to pick quotes that would be good talking points--they are a statement that begs conversation.

2) My opening is sort of long for a definition, but I'm showing you what I mean by "what I learned." This isn't direct summary of any article, this is what I learned from reading about assessment (and obviously reading more than just Kittle and Nagin).

3) My closing is just the things that, I think, are the most important thing that I could tell someone about Assessment. It's sort of a condensed version of my big, long definition section.

SO, HAVING SAID ALL THAT. . .

You don't have to have any of these particular categories. What you need to do is what I say above: create a kind of cheat sheet for someone to learn about your topic.

So without further ado. . . external image vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document.png Assessment.handout.docx
