Skills are assessed by the mechanical technology of testing. Some teachers find that such exams are the end goal of their course. While standards, objectives, and curriculum plan for these computer adapted grade proficiency assessments, learning should not end.
Continue to teach your students. Help nourish their minds. Training for a marathon does not mean that a person stops running once they are finished. Rather, the purpose of the marathon is their joy of running. Create excitement over learning, which will lead to incredible outcomes.
Creating an optimal space for student learning is not easy. Begin by developing lessons that ensure the students are learning. Consider the objective first, connect your exit ticket, then work backwards. Figure out what you want the students to learn by the end of the period. While some activities you find online seem engaging, your lesson can keep the students interested as long as you plan well.
Be careful and strategic about your delivery. Be aware of your goals and work with your students to meet the objective. Avoid spending most of the period lecturing. Rather, have them discuss, inquire, and grow. Put the cognitive load on the students, so they can learn from each other.
