Classroom assessment is not limited to objective tests, performance
rubrics, or essays. Assessment is ongoing through personal communications,
primarily in the form of questioning, observations, and discussions.
These types of classroom interactions can provide valuable, immediate
feedback about student achievement, communication skills, and social
skills. Personal communications with students are unique in that
they are spontaneous, flexible, and provide nonverbal cues. This
lesson provides guidelines, strategies, and techniques for
making the most of classroom interactions.
