Improve your students' learning today! Formative assessment goes hand in hand with teaching and learning. It helps students to process and apply their learning, and it informs the teacher about student progress. It involves the students in their own learning process, helping them to set goals and identify steps toward these goals. With the immediate feedback, and the visible thinking processes, students learn to understand how they learn (metacognition) and have a clearer understanding of how their thinking has changed. Research suggests this kind of feedback is the most powerful factor in improving student achievement.
This pack includes well over 100 formative assessment task ideas that can be used with ANY subject (math, science, the arts, reading/writing/literacy, English language learners, social studies). The tasks go beyond just written work to include verbal response, drama, music, visual art, and much more. Many ideas can integrate technology into the learning and assessment.
The pack also includes information and tips on how to use formative assessment effectively, and several READY-TO-USE printables that accompany ideas in the pack.
