For one week, keep a “pedagogical diary” and record how you are using the principle of good assessment. Record how you think you succeeded and failed to properly communicate with and prepare your students for any recent assessments. Consider the environment your class(es) have surrounding tests and if you are contributing to “test hype.” See if your exams serve as tools of improvement for your students and if they are actually learning from your corrections. Then, share the results with your colleagues, academic team, or another homeschooling parent. Consider having your academic team do this together and then share the results and discuss at a team meeting. If you are a homeschool parent, consider sharing with your spouse or a homeschooling friend with similar philosophy of education.
