Tools and techniques to promote better learning

Tests and other assessments are effective tools for determining how well students  learned (and how well you taught) earlier in the semester.

But they don’t really do much to help students learn in the present, or as the semester progresses.

At least, summative assessments don’t. But formative ones, that occur throughout the semester and across the entire learning process, can.

You discover how to incorporate these highly effective tools into your teaching in the Magna 20 Minute Mentor program, How Can I Transform My Tests Into Learning Tools?.

Led by Rob Jenkins, M.A., professor of English and “Two-Year Track” columnist for The Chronicle of Higher Education, and Debi Moon, J.D., recipient of a National Teaching Excellence Award and administration and faculty member at Georgia Perimeter College, this fast, focused Magna 20-Minute Mentor program will provide you with an assortment of tools and techniques to promote better learning.

Once you’ve viewed the program, you’ll know:

  • The benefits of formative assessments.
  • Which assessments are most helpful in improving student learning.
  • Why giving more assessments doesn’t have to mean more work for you.
  • How formative assessments can help you improve your pedagogy.
