In addition to pre and post assessments, teachers can institute many other types of alternative assessment.

Post-unit assessments can include "lab tests." Student interpretation of data (especially data which they collected) can expose their understanding. Hands-on experiments that replicate a process used in the unit allow teachers to measure ability to use skills that were taught. Givencertain materials, students can construct a model of the current topic of study , i.e. the cell. Students could work alone or in pairs to design and/or carry out anexperiment.

A culminating activity such as a presentation, skit or teaching of others allows exhibition of student learning . The teacher should use the rehearsal for the public activity as the actual assessment,so that any nervousness won't hinder an accurate assessment of students' knowledge.

Things to Consider

When you start using alternative assessment, start small. One example of this is to use an old multiple choice question withoutproviding the answers. This eliminates the "guessing factor" for which multiple choice tests are famous.

Look for things that you already do to find evidence of students' thinking and learning.

Be realistic about the values of your school community.

If graded report cards are emphasized, be sure that youcan translate your assessments into traditional grades.

HOW TO GET TO ASSIGNMENT 4:

One Way

Click on the link in color at the top of this page. When it appears, press "Save" and name the file so that you can work on thisassignment "off-line." You can type right on the assignment template. Be sure to save your assignment on a disk or on your computer hard drive.

Another Way

Copy the text below, and save it to your disk or computer.

GOAL: To review forms of assessment you already use. To expand upon or try a new assessment (or combination of assessments) for anupcoming lesson or unit of study.

GIVE: Feedback to others on their assignments at the TWB Learning Cafe

Assignment 4: Your Current and Future Assessment Tools

  • List 7 different types of assessment you have used in your classroom practice.
  • Next to each one listed in #1, describe it further with a one-sentence description giving a specific example.
  • Think of a unit of study or activity you have already done with your students. Say what assessment tool you used. Describe otherassessment tools you think could also be useful that you may not have used for this instruction. (See examples from the previous pages tostimulate your thinking.)
  • Think of a lesson or unit of study you will be teaching in the coming weeks. List all of the assessment tools that might be helpful touse.
  • Next to each possible assessment tool you list in #4 (above), describe how it may be helpful to you and your students.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world

this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
