Sorry on the delay on this one. I was out of town and it looks like twitter had some troubles.
druinok Okay ladies and gents, who all is here for #sbarbook? :) Don't forget you may need to unprotect tweets for recording the convo
jsb16 I'm here for #sbarbook. Didn't finish the chapter, though.
jrykse Here #sbarbook
druinok overall, this chapter was way easier to read than some of the previous ones - what stood out to you guys? #sbarbook
jrykse and were back? #sbarbook
fourkatie here for #sbarbook . A little late. trouble with twitter.
jsb16 I like the idea of trying to "convict" kids of understanding with a "preponderance of evidence". #sbarbook
fourkatie I didn't finish the chapter, but seemed easier to grasp. assessment infor reminded me of past #sbarbook
druinok Ok #sbarbook, it appears we are back :) This chapter hit me in the gut again. I've been guilty of some of the assessment issues :(
druinok @jsb16 I really liked that analogy as well. #sbarbook
jsb16 I'm just not sure what would provide best evidence that a kid understands, say, the difference between velocity & acceleration. #sbarbook
jrykse One thing that annoyed me was the performance task examples. All geometry. I swear they are always geometry examples. #sbarbook
druinok Many tchr tests tend to focus on the accuracy of knowledge & skill rather than on evidence of transferability #sbarbook guilty :(
fourkatie Liked the assessment continuum #sbarbook
druinok @jreulbach me either - and that really convicted me too - the idea of "understanding is revealed in performance" #sbarbook
druinok @jsb16 as in authentic assessment projects? #sbarbook
jsb16 #sbarbook @druinok I think we probably all are. I know our midterm & final are the same way.
druinok @jrykse geometry is so hands-on, it's easier to find authentic projects I think #sbarbook
fourkatie @jreulbach top of 152 (continuum of assessment) #sbarbook
druinok In my workshop today, was thinking through the "Is this REAL?" lens - it's really going to be tough at times :( #sbarbook
jsb16 #sbarbook @druinok Any authentic task, rather than quiz question, yeah.
druinok @jreulbach agreed that skills are needed.. but I am guilty of assessing what is EASY for me to grade, not necessarily BEST #sbarbook
jsb16 @jreulbach Only seeing half the conversation on #sbarbook. I think your tweets are protected.
druinok I liked that this chapter had a lot of illustrations with examples, etc #sbarbook
druinok I really did like the GRASPS concept #sbarbook
jrykse Academic prompts is about the best I have. I really don't think I have done any tasks this past couple years. #sbarbook
jreulbach @fourkatie I liked that too. and, the order was great. Confirmed what I was thinking about projects at the end. #sbarbook
jreulbach I REALLY liked "Rounding Out Evidence" pg.169. one-minute essay, bring written q to class each day. #sbarbook
jrykse @druinok The prompts they gave for EU's and q's past couple chptrs helped also.This one will help in maybe finally getting a task. #sbarbook
druinok @jreulbach agreed - I really liked the one-minute essay idea #sbarbook
druinok Not a science teacher, but this statement was shocking to me.. "A typical sci lab presents an exercise, not a problem" #sbarbook
jrykse @jreulbach The 1 minute essay will be something to mix up with exit slips instead of just a problem to quick do. #sbarbook
jreulbach @druinok Two q's though. 1) does each student write on clean paper? 2) when do I have time to read all of them? lots of paper #sbarbook
jsb16 Having perfectionism paralysis w #sbarbook atm. Not happy w stds (district or state), leads to not liking EQs & EUs, makes assessment rough.
jreulbach @jrykse Exit slips are hard bc students have so far to travel at my school. I can't hold them back even for 2 mins. #sbarbook
jreulbach anyone interested in staying for 10 mins after and talking about red flags from last #sbarbook? Planning it now for the fall.
fourkatie I think the one-minute essay might be good to do at the end of a week. big point(s) this week. question(s) you still have #sbarbook
jsb16 #sbarbook @druinok Cookbook labs are definitely exercises. Little thinking required.
jrykse @jreulbach @druinok Thinking just tear off 1/2 sheet from anything they have. can scan during your passing time between hours. #sbarbook
druinok @jreulbach I didn't say it was easy, I just said I liked the idea LOL :) #sbarbook
jsb16 @jreulbach What was the last #sbarbook?
druinok @jsb16 I think that is so true for all of us - it seems SO overwhelming to me! #sbarbook
jreulbach I was thinking GDocs. Everyone could enter their Q, then I could look ever them. #sbarbook
jsb16 If anyone writes a blog post about UbD assessments, please tweet and tag #sbarbook I'd love to see real examples.
jreulbach @fourkatie Oh, I like that! Not everyday then. I'm going to use GDocs for that for sure then. #sbarbook
jrykse @jreulbach don't do everydayPre planned question.Make sure they have 5 minutes at end of class. Like @fourkatie, after a big idea. #sbarbook
fourkatie @jreulbach maybe turn it into an Entrance slip. Need to see me before next class to re-explain. #sbarbook
jrykse @jreulbach I don't return, not doing any feedback. Strictly for me to see what is going on. If kid is lost a flag! #sbarbook
druinok @jrykse but some feedback could be useful I would think? #sbarbook
jsb16 #sbarbook @jrykse Do you have kids who don't turn it in?
druinok Sounds like we are starting to wind down - any other thoughts on this chapter? #sbarbook
fourkatie @jreulbach We have only 1 minute between classes, so exit slips have been tough to implement for me, so entrance slip. voila! #sbarbook
jrykse @druinok I tried doing feedback but then got overwhelmed. Stopped doing them. Then tried again just for me. #sbarbook
jrykse @jsb16 No grade, no worries for them. I try to touch base next day so I think they figured out it was good to at least try. #sbarbook
jsb16 Not sure I'm going to have the next #sbarbook chapter done by Thursday...
druinok Is Thursday still good for ch 8? #sbarbook
jrykse @jreulbach I've seen some folks do that. Seen some make it a grade. I just wanted a way to quickly see how all doing. #sbarbook
jrykse @druinok I'm fine for thursday. #sbarbook
jreulbach I'm in. Believe it or not, I already read it. It was very short and easy too. #sbarbook
jreulbach BUT, these are chapters that I already do most of in class currently so I already understood them. #sbarbook
fourkatie I should be okay with Thursday #sbarbook
druinok Alrighty then, sounds like Thursday is okay for most... thanks as always for a great conversation! #sbarbook
jsb16 Need to spend some quality time with @kellyoshea's standards and (I think) @ThinkThankThunk's FCI bef I'm ready to really work on #sbarbook.
