CVPM Paradigm Assessment—Feedback request

August 26, 2017
tags: ,

Earlier in the summer, I wrote about paradigm lab assessments as a way to improve student understanding of the arguments we made in board meetings.

Summer is over, and it’s time to get to work cranking out these assessments. I’ve written a draft of the first assessment I’d like to do with my Honors Physics class, and I would love your feedback to make this even better.

Some questions from me:

  • This will be the first paradigm assessment for my students—am I testing too much here?
  • I don’t want this to feel like a lab report. Would it be better to break this up into a quiz or some sort of form on Canvas?

      Good question—My thought is to write a single standard for each unit—something like “I can explain the arguments and experiments that led to the development of this model” and use this assignment as the only (for now) way to show mastery of that standard. I’ll give students an unlimited number of revisions to achieve the standard. I welcome any suggestions you might have.
