    I had a foreign language teacher reach out with a question: how are others assessing students during remote learning? She teaches 7th and 8th grade students (approx 150 students) and is struggling to find ways to authentically assess. She's tried Flipgrid but says it takes forever for her to grade each student. She's tried giving a digital quiz but found that students are using notes and texting each other for answers. Any suggestions? She will soon have half of the class in person, with the other half remote.

    My specials teachers, and other teachers in the elementary school I work at, have used a variety of ways to assess their students.

    • Google Slides-each student has their own slide deck, or their own slide they must submit work on.
    • Google Forms-students submit their products in a form so that it is linked to their school Google Account
    • Breakout rooms in Zoom-assessing students individually-however this does require a co-host to monitor the rest of the class. 
    I hope some of these ideas help.
