Design Step 5: Construct a Prototype
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating

Students learn about the manufacturing phase of the engineering design process. They start by building prototypes, which is a special type of model used to test new design ideas. Students gain experience using a variety of simple building materials, such as foam core board, balsa wood, cardstock and hot glue. They present their prototypes to the class for user testing and create prototype iterations based on feedback. (Note: Conduct this activity in the context of a design project that students are working on; this activity is Step 5 in a series of six that guide students through the engineering design loop.)

Floop - Meaningful Feedback, FASTER
Rating

Feedback is a very important tool for assessment, and it has a significant impact on student achievement (0.7 effect size, Hattie). However, students need to know HOW to use that feedback to improve their work, and ultimately their success as a student. This is where Floop comes in!

"Floop is a web app that saves teachers time and helps students see the value in feedback.

Feedback is the #1 driver of student learning. Help create the three conditions for transformational feedback.

Actionable Information
Students get the feedback they need, when they need it. Give feedback 4x faster than traditional methods with a digital dropbox and comment banks.

Agency to Act
Students engage with their feedback while it's still relevant. Help students act on feedback through conversations and resubmissions.

Feedback Literacy
Students learn how to use feedback to grow. Empower students to give feedback through guided peer review. Coach along the way with feedback read receipts."

Administrators and educators can these questions during a morning meeting, advisory period, small group intervention, or general class time to:

Check in on student well-being and supports
Do an interim SEL skills and competencies check
Gather classroom feedback to inform instruction
Identify the students who need extra help right now academically, socially, and emotionally

In This Guide, You'll Get Access to:

✔ Panorama's full check-ins question bank (includes 80+ free response and multiple choice questions for grades 3-12)

✔ Recommendations on who should use the questions, how often to send check-ins, and how to take action on the data

✔ An overview of Panorama's new student check-ins tool, which is a companion to annual SEL and school climate measurement "

This wikispace has been developed by the Sun West Assessment Committee, and the CAIT (Curriculum, Assessment, Instruction, Technology) Team

"Student assessment is a deliberate process used to provide feedback and evidence for making judgments about students' learning in relation to identified learning outcomes. Teachers guide the evaluation and reporting of student progress to parents/guardians" - Sun West Administrative Procedures 370: Student Assessment

Checkmark_CC.jpg

1.1 Assessment procedures are to support the principles of fair assessment and implement best practices for grading and reporting student achievement.
1.2 Teachers are to use a variety of assessment practices that are fair, objective, and reflect sound professional judgment.
1.3 Student grades are to reflect the level of achievement of the learning outcomes.
1.4 Learning Behaviours will be reported separately.
1.5 Diagnostic and formative assessments will be used to provide direction for improvement or adjustment to a program of instruction (This is assessment for learning).
1.6 Summative assessment will be used to make judgments about a student's achievement at the end of a sequence of instruction in order to assign a grade (assessment of learning).
1.7 Students will be involved in the assessment and grading process, through the use of rubrics, exemplars, inquiry learning, and other means.
1.8 Teachers are to report student progress to parents to guardians by means of parent-teacher-student conferences, reports cards, personal contact, and information technology such as
PowerSchool, emails, blogs, etc.

Thinking Robotics: Teaching Robots to Make Decisions
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating

Students learn basic concepts of robotic logic and programming by working with Boe-Bot robots—a simple programmable robotic platform designed to illustrate basic robotic concepts. Under the guidance of the instructor and a provided lab manual, student groups build simple circuits and write codes to make their robots perform a variety of tasks, including obstacle and light detection, line following and other motion routines. Eight sub-activities focus on different sensors, including physical sensors, phototransistors and infrared headlights. Students test their newly acquired skills in the final activity, in which they program their robots to navigate an obstacle course.

Using Microcontrollers to Model Homeostasis
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating

Students learn about homeostasis and create models by constructing simple feedback systems using Arduino boards, temperature sensors, LEDs and Arduino code. Starting with pre-written code, students instruct LEDs to activate in response to the sensor detecting a certain temperature range. They determine appropriate temperature ranges and alter the code accordingly. When the temperature range is exceeded, a fan is engaged in order to achieve a cooling effect. In this way, the principle of homeostasis is demonstrated. To conclude, students write summary paragraphs relating their models to biological homeostasis.
