Collaborative Decision-Making | Assessment and Homework

A selection of Student Voice tools and resources focused on assessment and homework.

Various tool types can be used to engage students in collaborative decision making about the curriculum, pedagogy, assessment and homework, and classroom culture. Some of these tools require working with an individual student, some are better suited to small group work, and others are designed to promote whole class discussion. Whichever tool type you use, the benefits will redound to the entire class. These tools are focused on assessment and homework.
