A glyph is a symbol that conveys information nonverbally. Glyphs may be used in many ways to get to know more about students. They are extremely useful for students who do not possess the skill to write long, complex explanations. Reading a glyph and interpreting the information represented is a skill that requires deeper thinking. Students must be able to analyze the information presented in visual form.
