In January 2013, four Silver12 dots (myself, Jane Butterfield (University of Minnesota/UMPTYMP), Robert Campbell, III (College of St Benedict/St John's University), and John Peter
(Utica College)) moderated a panel on Alternative Assessment Techniques
for Project NExT Fellows at the Joint Meetings in San Diego. Here
are the slides presented by our four panelists.
Bonnie Gold: Summative Assessment Techniques
TJ Hitchman: Standards-Based Grading
Dana Ernst: Using IBL as Assessment
Victor Odafe: Assessing with Voice
Inspired by the ideas given in this panel, the original group of organizers, joined by fifth Silver12 dot David Clark (University
of Minnesota/UMPTYMP), ran a MAA contributed paper session at the 2014
Joint Meetings in Baltimore. It was a great success, with many
great ideas and experiences shared. Using the links below, you
can find the schedule with speakers, titles, and links to abstracts
from the JMM website.
We also had a large session at the JMM in 2016! You can find the schedule using these links:
We've now combined forces with a group of Gold14 dots who have an
interest in Formative Assessment (and Standards Based Grading in
general). Our newly formed FAAT (Formative and Alternative
Assessment Team) has some great plans in the works, so watch for
exciting events at MathFest 2017!
