Student-centered Assessment Video Suite

August 22, 2013

What does student-centered assessment look like in the classroom? How do students benefit from this type of assessment? Why do teachers implement these practices in their classrooms? The Students at the Center project, in conjunction with Dr. Heidi Andrade, Ed.D. and the students and teachers from IS 223 (Brooklyn, NY), produced this suite of videos to begin to answer these questions for those wishing to implement more student-centered approaches in the classroom, school, district, or beyond.

The first video, Student-centered Assessment Jeopardy, serves as an introduction to the series. Play along as three contestants tackle questions on the particulars of self- and peer assessment and learn where to find current research on key components of student-centered approaches to learning along with a collection of student-centered tools and resources. This animation is a great introduction for teachers and students alike.

The next two videos in the series depict ISS 223 students and teachers engaging in and reflecting on student-centered self- and peer assessment. Learn how to effectively implement self- and peer assessment in your classroom and hear how what your students can gain from these practices.

Finally, watch as Dr. Heidi Andrade, Ed.D. defines the key components of self- and peer assessment and explains why should you try it in your classroom.
