Do they understand what I wanted them to learn? Measuring simply means how do I know? Did 90% pass a quiz? Did all students complete the in class activity with a 90% or better? Sometimes you can include classroom participation as a measurable outcome, but in doing so you may need a checklist that shows what you observed in the students. Therefore, most measured outcomes result in the work you can provide as proof the students got the concept.

Explain and provide possible differentiated teaching strategies (aligned to the learning outcomes) that are appropriate for a variety of students with different learning profiles.

1. students who are ahead (gifted, may be bored easily and then a distraction)
2. ...
