When I don’t do an assessment

I’ve had my conversion experience with the Gospel of Assessment, so I always feel bad when I don’t quite manage to do an assessment at the end of a one-shot library session, or I simply forget. Often I forget because the class hasn’t gone well and I’m all anxious about that, and then I just feel worse because I didn’t manage to do an assessment.

But every now and then, I don’t manage to do one because the class has been in the library’s computer classroom, so the students all have computers and are searching on their topics and I’m circulating and helping them and the energy is really good and all of a sudden, whoa, gotta get to my next class! and they’re gone.

And those times, I don’t feel so bad.
