When using conferencing and conversations as assessment, it is important to have a record to measure growth and success. Teachers say … “The data or the ‘student work’ is actually
more than just the finished product, [it’s] the
process, the behaviours, the conversations and
the non-verbal and verbal communication.“
We have learned that perhaps the highest
impact we can have on our students is
taking the time to talk with them and
connect with them.
