Teachers Resources, Rubrics & Assessments

 


1) Enhancing your teaching effectiveness
http://honolulu.hawaii.edu/intranet/committees/FacDevCom/guidebk/teachtip/enhance.htm

Recommends and gives suggestions on using learning style inventories – assessing your students and helping them in the most personal way – very informative

 

3) DVC Learning Style Survey for College (2000) www.metamath.com/lsweb/dvclearn.htm

Very informative site – are you a visual, audio, or tactile/ kinesthetic learner. After finding out what style you learn best with – then it gives you strategies to work with your style. I especially like how it focuses on college students. Many times we don’t even learn how to learn until college. Perhaps they should use these for grade school kids and be able to help them more.

4) Kiersey Temperament Sorter, Advisor Team Inc, (2004) www.advisorteam.com/temperament_sorter/

5) International High IQ Society Intelligence Tests
http://www.highiqsociety.org/

In depth assessments – different types - only problem – they make a big deal about high IQ, which can make you feel inadequate if you don’t score high – but chances are everyone will score high on one kind – just not all of them.
