Students turn in work to a bin, 3 bins provided each with different label. This lets me know the confidence level each student had in the assignment turned in and then based on grading who needs extra supports.
When students turn in their assignments to me, there will be three different baskets each labeled differently. One thumbs up, one thumbs sideways, one thumbs down. This allows the students to self assess on how well they felt they completed and understood the assignment. This put thought on me while I am grading for the different situations and who needs supports further. This allows me to see who thinks they understand but don’t, or doesn’t think they understand but do and so forth.
This goes into the supportive phase. The students are evaluating themselves before the grading process and it allows me to gain some insight on where the students are at. I will be able to identify quickly and with ease who needs supports and where. From there, I can group students however I find necessary to make sure that they fully understand the content before moving forward. For example, the students that turned it into the thumbs down section but got everything right, probably just need to work on confidence in the section. Students that put thumb sideways and got some answers correct and some wrong, probably need the material presented to them in a different way.
