Every year I give paper and pencil tests for my students. Sometimes I observe them. Sometimes I even give them a creative project that requires the use of a rubric. But after the hundredth time of the same ol’ boring assessment, you really start to assess (see what I did there?) whether you need some new ideas. And I did. And I found some creative ways to assess my student informally besides the traditional paper and pencil, bring out the rubric ones.
Now there is absolutely nothing wrong with paper and pencil or rubric assessments, but sometimes you just want something a bit more engaging for both your sanity and your students, am I right? So, I compiled a list of informal assessments that you could use with your students, A to Z. Some you may have heard of and others you may not have. Either way, I’m sure there is something there that you will be able to use!
