I have varying levels of students as we all likely do. After spending the period learning binary (flippy-do, odometer), I added an assignment where students had to create a 10-question binary quiz.
I gave examples of question types. I told the students they could make the quiz as difficult as they wanted and even try to stump me with their questions. I told them to indicate which questions they’d allow me or classmates to use a flippy-do to find the answer and which we’d have to do without.
The conversations and discussions between students were really impressive. It helped me understand and see the level of knowledge by students. I’d be happy to share a few examples of student work if anyone is interested.
