I've been pondering the many ways we could use assessment within Canvas.So many people ask for ideas. So I thought I'd get you guys to help me.
PLEASE feel free to add ideas.
Assessment ideas within Canvas in Primary Schools
Capturing ‘The Moment’
I enjoyed collecting other assessment ideas here also https://community.canvaslms.com/groups/k12/blog/2018/05/14/assessment-and-the-little-people
@stacy_lambert I'm sure you have some ideas to add! Especially after I read your cool blog https://community.canvaslms.com/groups/k12/blog/2018/10/14/previously-beetroot-laden-pbl-task-it-s-a...
I have not done this before but the idea I have swirling about at the moment is to record/video students demonstrating their work as a work sample e.g. an A sample, B sample, C Sample (not going any further as that could be totally demoralising...) to add into assessments to show what each 'level' looks like. Then have them read a generic feedback they design for A-C levels so that recording can be attached to the feedback in Speedgrader for all of the related tasks. If they get a recording from me - it might mean a D-E with some 'missions' to complete. Then there is a generic grade feedback that has been designed by the kids for the kids that kids understand (there is the student voice component) that can be added to specific feedback as well. Anyway - that's what is going on in my head right now. Getting it going is another thing altogether.
And emojis too - https://emojipedia.org/ - however just throwing those in here - haven't even started with these yet. Someone will come up with something for this...
I love this list you have designed @Bobby2 - very thorough and could be used at any level K-12. It's awesome!
@david_summervi1 have a look at this list. Fantastic!
Thanks for the great ideas Bobby! As you know, I am a Canvas newbie, but just wondering, are there ways of getting little people to create a photo collage on an app such as Pic-collage and then embedding into Canvas with assistance as a gallery of ideas? A Walk and Wonder strategy on Canvas?
For the languages classroom, I can see so much potential. My little people have enjoyed having a gallery of songs in the target language to select and sing within Canvas. I think there is also some potential to write stories with something like Sway. I've also had 'guess who' in a previous LMS, with clues written in the target language and learners submit what they think the answer is.... another thing for me to investigate in Canvas
Love your thinking @anita_wood !
Walk and Wonder - Love it!
Possibilities that spring to mind could be through a collaborative powerpoint. https://community.canvaslms.com/groups/k12/blog/2017/11/10/collaborations-changed-my-world
Or even easier through a padlet. It depends on how familiar the kids are with their devices and navigating themselves around their own device as well as Canvas or other embedded tools. BUT the kids seem to pick these things up fairly quickly I've noticed.
Your Sway example is FAB! I love a sway.
Guess who? - let's talk!
Another idea for me to explore is student reflection more, particularly to draw out intercultural understanding. I recently attended a fabulous session with the Asian Education Foundation here in Australia on their BRIDGE project. A huge thing I took away from this session was getting learners to focus more on cultural similarities rather than differences. If learners could access Canvas at home, is it possible for them to work with a parent to complete a challenge like "What Japanese influences can you find in your kitchen?' Can the teacher then pre-approve content???? Ideas... ideas... I just need more time to play

Love incorporating creativity and having fun with learning.
Enjoy learning alongside the kids, and with my colleagues.
