Technology For Assessment

Lemond describes using technology and the app Kahoot! to informally assess youth during STEM learning experiences.

Video-Based Learning Module

As you watch the skill video below, think about these questions:

  • What does Lemond say is the benefit of using this app for the informal assessment?
  • How does Lemond use the youth responses to inform his instruction?

Now that you've watched the video, reflect on what you saw and post your responses.

  • Lemond has access to iPads for the youth. How could you use a similar assessment technique without access to this type of technology?
  • How do you make informal assessments of what youth are learning during and after STEM learning experiences?
