Music Mapping Exit Ticket
: As a part of my Music Mapping lesson I had the students complete an "exit ticket" before the end of class to assess for understanding in the lesson.
Disappearing Squares Pre-Paint Assessment
: For my high school lesson plan, Disappearing Squares, I required that students complete a "pre-paint assessment" once they had sketched their plan and gotten to the point where they were ready to paint. They first took a photo of their project using their iPads and then uploaded that photo to
the Notability iPad app. The assessments were then emailed directly to me via Notability.
Power School: During my high school internship I completed all of my assessment and grading through the software, Power School. This included daily participation grades as well as self-assessment activities and final project grades.
