As we have learned so far in this course, assessments should always be part of instruction. In other words, educators should always be assessing for learning (formative). One way to formatively assess learners is using the “muddiest point.” The “muddiest point” refers to the ideas that are still messy or unclear to the learner. This phrase can be used as an exit ticket that you would use at the end of a lesson to determine what concepts learners may still be struggling with so that you know what you may have to reinforce the next day.
Prior to beginning work on this discussion,
- Review the learning objectives thus far in the course.
- Review the discussions and assignments you have completed thus far.
- Review your instructor feedback on discussions and assignments.
Examine what you have learned so far in this course. Consider what learning objectives you have mastered and those that need further developing.
Complete the following:
- Respond to the following question: What has been the “muddiest” point so far in this course? In other words, what topic remains the least clear to you? Explain your reasoning so that your instructor can provide guidance.
- Select one quote from your course text that you found particularly meaningful about assessments, perhaps something new you learned. Explain how it has altered or enhanced your perspective about assessments. Be sure to properly cite and reference your quote using proper APA formatting.
