How am I being assessed today?
I will assess you formatively today, and make a professional judgement to what extent you understand our learning material. I will use observation, your written work, answers to questions, and contribution to class discussions as data to make my decisions. I normally record my observations in a "evidence of learning" spreadsheet, which I will happily share with you privately if you so wish. I usually need a day or two notice.
I will also ask you to complete a self-assessment which I will use to help me guage how well you think you understand our material in class.
As a computer scientist, you have:
Provide an answer from a number of possibilities. Recognize and state briefly a distinguishing fact or feature.
The circumstances that form the setting for an event, statement, or idea, and in terms of which it can be fully understood and assessed.
Produce a plan, simulation or model.
Consider the merits or otherwise of an argument or concept. Opinions and conclusions should be presented clearly and supported with appropriate evidence and sound argument.
