Teachers are finding better ways to address assessment needs for students through practice and tools. One tool that is of particular use for assessing student learning is Adobe® Acrobat®. This tutorial will cover three methods of form creation within the scenario of assessing student work. We’ll use a lesson I created in my last teaching assignment (an Adobe® Flash® activity) and three types of assessment forms; an Exit Pass, a Check List, and a Rubric. One can convert any Adobe® Acrobat® document, including a scanned paper file, into an interactive form for online distribution, tracking and collection. Before we get to our three examples, let’s learn about PDF forms by scanning a paper form, an old-fashioned Hilroy telephone message pad.
This is part one of a two-part series on creating Acrobat forms for use in classroom assessment. To continue with part 2, please visit: http://edexchange.adobe.com/posts/f4bd38104f.
