BL1 Chapter 4 Thoughts
Chapter four really made me think about how important eliminating bias in my assessments is to my student's success. Popham states that the best way to do this is to simply be aware of it and the need to eliminate it. This makes perfect sense because if we aren't aware of something in the first place it's very hard to eliminate. Also, assessment accommodations are the most practical and necessary procedures to minimize bias for students with disabilities. I completely believe these accommodations are necessary for the success of these students and I implement the Timing and Scheduling Accommodation regularly in my classroom.
