A different approach to assessment in maths class.

Description

Geraldine O'Flynn, Scoil Chríost Rí, Portlaoise. "In the past I gave students a test at the end of the topic, marked it, handed it back to them and then moved on to the next topic. Now it's different, I'm trying something new... I'm trying out new approaches to assessment based on educational research. Its challenging, but my students are starting to think for themselves. They are definitely having more aha moments.
