Briggs, S. (2014). 21 Ways to Check for Student Understanding. Retrieved February 11, 2018, from https://www.opencolleges. -for-student-understanding/

This article discusses ways to insure that what you are teaching is actually being learned by the students. It argues that tests should not be used as the only method of measuring understanding, and that understanding is best measured during the lesson. Some of the suggestions included: avoid yes/no questions, reflections, summarizations from students, analogies, and several more interactive methods.

I found this article very helpful in this class because we have to do exactly as it says, design methods for measuring understanding outside of the traditional assessment. It provides good ideas not only for the assessment portion of all of the projects, but also the Big Thinks.
