SI 643 Reflection of Class Week 04

12 Feb
We discussed in class about how a librarian should do a summative evaluation and a formative assessment before and after a workshop.  First, in a summative evaluation, we learned that Likert and multiple choices were very effective tools in getting feedback from an audience of the workshop. Either Likert or multiple choices, it is very important that we should try our best to make good questions since poor question wordings usually lead to poor results.

Second, we learned that a well-done formative assessment could help instructors to customize instructions to fit needs of learners. Moreover, it would allow learners to get feedback that would help improve their project “before” it is done. In library, entrance survey, hand votes, and the human thermometer are most effective tools of formative assessment. Among three, I think entrance survey is better than the other two because, first, a librarian can assess learners’ anticipation and goals before a workshop, and second, a librarian can adjust the contents of workshop to maximize learners’ satisfaction.

    I agree that an entrance survey can really help us tailor our instruction to the needs of that particular group. It also requires thinking beforehand of ways to tailor the instruction, since I can imagine trying to think on your feet has the potential to be really stressful!
