Student-Centered Assessments in Mathematics

This presentation outlines the ways in which I involve my students''
in reflecting on their performance as they learn mathematics. I
strongly believe that these class-room assessment techniques
including minute notes, visualization techniques with TI
calculators, etc...) keep them grounded and engaged during class and
ensures that they absorb course material at higher levels.
I also solicit their feedback on course materials and their
performance by asking them to fill out a questionnaire after each
exam. This exercise further promotes ownership of learning. Based on
their responses, they are asked to figure out what they should do
differently to improve their performance in the course as well as
get a better grade in the course.
