#C4C15: Reederama: Assessing the fifth graders' understanding of thick and thin questions

What a wonderful example of shared student work:

I love how transparent you are being about your children’s work. By including all of their responses, as well as the analysis you have done upon them, you are allowing us to draw our own conclusions and see them in the context of your own.

I haven’t spent as much time in thinking about thick vs. thin questions for adults, but I think that is the next logical step. I wonder what kinds of thick questions we can ask of one another about teaching and learning. What isn’t in the “text” or “data” of our students? What helps us to dig deeper and strive for meaning and understanding?
