How will I assess the effectiveness of the differentiation I have planned for #Givercraft?
Amanda, Andrea and I are creating memory books for scenario 2, that teachers can give their students during the game. In assessing the effectiveness of our tool we will look at how many of the books we created were used and survey the teachers to find out if they found our tool helpful or not. At the end of scenario 2 we will be able to look through our chest of books and see which ones were taken out. If only five books were taken out then it maybe wasn’t an effective tool, but if almost all our books were taken out then it was very effective. I think we will also need to survey the teachers at the end of Givercraft and find out if the teachers found the tool useful and how it was useful for the teacher. Our tool is for the teachers, even though the student gets the book. In our survey we could ask:
Did you find the chests of books helpful? Why or why not?
How many books did you take out of the chests?
Would you suggest using this diffitool again in Givercraft?
These are just a few rough draft questions that could be asked. We could just ask teachers did you use the memory books, yes or no? If no one used them then it wasn’t effective, Amanda, Andrea and I will have to discuss and decide.
