Making Student Thinking Visible: Replacing Math Tests with Math Chats in a Remote Learning Environment
Presenter: Kristen Emmel
Date: March 15, 2021
Do you love a good number talk? What if we could make our math assessments less like a traditional test and more like a math chat? In this presentation we will investigate how to leverage technology to help us make our assessments match our classroom routines (even in a remote setting). Discover how Math Chats can provide students with the opportunity to make their thinking visible with multimedia responses. Watch how teachers can gain a deeper understanding of student misconceptions through dynamic interview-style assessments. During our time together we will look at sample tasks and student responses, discuss the power and flexibility of scoring assessments on a 1-point rubric, and how to use Math Chats as a progress monitoring tool.
