The results are in and my students absolutely LOVED my new idea around testing. I have received amazing videos, and my students worked much harder on these three questions, than I have witnessed students work on 30 multiple choice questions.
To further illustrate, beyond the Call of Duty video, below are two other students’ work, and how they chose to demonstrate their learning of derivatives involving trigonometry. First, here was the “test” question:
Show a real life application of an angle changing with respect to time. The use of a video, appropriate measurements and illustrated work must be shown. You must solve for the exact change of the angle at a certain time.
