Formative assessment cards present a quick, visual representation of students' understanding of a concept. Use the cards as an indicator system for students to self-assess and to give the teacher information about what they do--or do not--understand. Teacher poses a question and students respond by holding up the card indicating their level of knowledge on a topic. The teacher uses the information to adjust whole group instruction or to group students according to readiness.
