Old Formula – “You Just Have to Get Through It”

Work Hard Success Happy

New Formula

Work Happy Work Harder Success


Wait a minute! You just said we need to work happier to learn better but then said we have to fail to learn. How can those two claims co-exist?

We learn better when the primary motivation is internal vs. external and when we look at each task as “formative” instead of “summative”

Extrinsic vs. Intrinsic Motivation

"Wow, you did really well at these problems. You got 8 -- that's a great score. You must be really smart at these problems."

”Wow, you did really well on these problems. You got 8 -- that's a really high score! You must have worked really hard on these problems."

What kind of problems would you like to work on next, problems that are pretty easy so you'll do well, problems that you're pretty good at so you can show that you're smart, or problems that you'll learn a lot from even if you don't look so smart?

Dweck, Carol S. “Person vs. Process Praise.”

summative vs formative assessment
Summative vs. Formative Assessment

Summative Assessment

Formative Assessment

* Happens at the end of something… a reading chapter, a unit, etc.

* Happens during the unit and is a process rather than a single event.

* Worked on by both teacher and student

* Meant to give an ultimate, final assessment of student’s success at that thing.

* Often assesses more than one thing at the same time.

* Low stakes. Doesn’t “count” in the traditional ways.

* End product of the assessment is a “high stakes” grade given by the teacher. The grade “counts.”

* The end product is adjustments to either curriculum or student work process.
