Why was Understanding Measurement created?
“Not all students enter my program with strong measurement skills. I need something that I can add to my lectures on measurement or that I can assign. Sometimes students need go to through this type of material multiple times.”
- Today’s students, especially secondary students, do not always come to class knowing how to use measurement tools
- Measurement skills are fundamental, basic skills that students must know to graduate and succeed on-the-job
- Students can benefit from additional information, especially videos, and practice for learning and remediation
- Assessments indicate when the students have mastered the skills and are ready to go
Understanding Measurement Use:
- Understanding Measurement Tools Video & Activities can be used as an assignable online supplement for students who need a little remediation, review, or an alternative way to see/hear/understand a measurement lesson.
- Watch | Practice | Assess: videos can be watched multiple times for learning. Worksheets help students practice their skills and quizzes validate learning!
- Worksheets (docx) and quizzes (ExamView and QTI format):
- Assets can integrate with an LMS, but the grades won’t automatically flow to the gradebook
- Instructors can launch the assessment quizzes via the ExamView Testbank or QTI Files in the OIR to record grades in their LMS
- Videos and Worksheets are delivered in the Online Learning Suite and LMS-ready content
