Games are an interactive and engaging way for students to express their understanding of content in an alternative manner. Teachers often get a more authentic view of students’ level of comprehension, because of the higher level of engagement.
Use the information from your STEM unit plan to create an 8-10 slide digital presentation about formative assessment games that could be shared with colleagues in your content area.
Include the following:
- Description of three types of learning games. Include how the assessment outcome for each game aligns with the learning objectives.
- Brief rationale for each game describing how a teacher would use the game as an immediate reference to monitor and adjust for student learning.
