Student-Centered Assessment

This module has helped me think about student-centered assessment. The discussion about rubrics was helpful because I find them to be useful in helping students be more focused on the task at hand. They can see specifically what the teacher is expecting and exactly how the assignment will be graded. Student-centered assessment reminds me of how we focus on the learning process today. Project based learning is another type of student based learning. Being a teacher in this day and age is about what students can learn from us through our facillitating the learning process. So much can be done when learning is student based, such as with projects and assessments, rather than teacher based. EDM
