Responsible Decision-Making

How Assessdo Uses This Reflection Tool

Educators and administrators can implement elements of this tool in-person, virtually, or a blend of both. For example:

• Meet with a student or group of students in-person or online to assign assessment online.  Educator instantly views results and talks about selected assessment for 5-10 minutes.

• Post online and have students answer during their own time.  Educator views and reports results back to students in class at end of week.  System stores results for administration, district, and statewide data.

• Include assessments within assignments that students may be completing at home.
