Reflection on Debate Forum

In this debate forum about assessment, there were a lot of good points brought up. In the forum, the panel members mentioned ideas that were eye opening. The speeches revolved around assessment and alternatives and as future teachers it’s important to keep an open mind, in knowing that all students are different, and they do not all fit into the cookie cutter mold that’s been used on everyone’s, assessment is not one side fit all. In order to be successful, it’s important that assessment becomes tailored to the student it’s assessing. The point of education is to create lifelong learners, and if that student gets turned off from education because of the standard assessment, the educational system failed them.
