I was given some homework on Friday. It was to make a short video, talking to teachers about saving time in the classroom with oral assessments. Here you go, Marc ;)
I cannot underscore the value of talking to your students for evaluative purposes. Not only is it the quickest way to evaluate individual understanding with any kind of veracity but the very act of talking with our students helps us to see them. To really see them as people, as learners, as individuals in our classrooms.
