Assessment Success Stories

Our school division has been focusing on Assessment for Learning for a number of years. In 2004 I created a video that was intended to illustrate how assessment is used in every day life. We found 3 teacher/student relationships and used the principles outlined by Rick Stiggins and applied them to an air force pilot, a potter and professional football player.

Our intention was to help teachers see the connection between the value of assessment and the involvement of students in the process. I’m particularly drawn to Claude’s perspectives on learning. Claude is a teacher by trade and reflects on how his experience learning pottery might be applied in the classroom. The final interview with Saskatchewan Roughrider, Scott Schultz also has some interesting insights about the value of assessment.

Feel free to use this as you wish…..you might enjoy the bloopers at the end.
