Wrangling Statistics Assesssments – Lucy Edmonds
Writing, crafting, critiquing, developing, moderating or what comes down to wrangling Statistics assessments is often a daunting task, with many teachers opting to re-use the same assessments, contexts and data sets repeatedly – The Australian sports data set and zygomatic widths of Maui dolphin rostrums ring any bells?
Lucy Edmonds & Heral Patel from Green Bay High School, covered their process of writing both internals and E-O-Y school assessments, from choosing interesting and engaging contexts, to developing an assessment at different levels of understanding. Lucy and Heral are reasonably confident they’ve already made every mistake possible when writing, moderating and administering assessments – and shared a system of writing assessments which make them interesting to both us and the students (acknowledgements to Sue Spencer, Epsom Girls’ Grammar School). The power point also links to Sophie Wrights 2018 resource.
