Tried on the spot assessment again today using audioboo. This class have just completed work on the upper and middle courses of rivers, and I wanted to check their understanding. It was interesting how difficult some pupils found it to articulate their thoughts under pressure, and a sure lesson for what lies ahead in terms of assessment at Standard Grade. The same content will be required, and similar pressures of time and an unseen question will be presented to students. A worthwhile exercise for me as the teacher, and hopefully something the students can reflect on.
