La cosa empieza bastante básica, pero el final es muy bueno, sobre todo porque a muchos se nos olvida que lo que tienen que hacer los exámenes es evaluar las competencias adquiridas, y que el énfasis debe estar en estas y no en las notas. La idea de los videos es interesante.
I do this in my courses. I typically start each semester with a set of standards I share with my students. During the semester, I periodically quiz them. Student who don’t perform well on the quiz can create a brief video in which they solve a problem to demonstrate their understanding. I encourage everyone to continue creating problem-solving videos throughout the semester to improve their standard score.
This approach works well in my experience. It places the emphasis on what students understand, not how they perform on a test. And I find it surprising how quickly the videos reveal what a student understands, and where they might need help. You don’t have to use videos, of course. There are lots of ways to implement standards based grading. Shawn Cornally, Frank Noschese, and Andy Rundquist are three people with some great ideas.
