Product Description
Formative assessments are used in the classroom to get a pulse on the learning of your students. Teachers take these quick assessments and then use them to guide and enhance their instruction. After teaching a concept and believing that your students have grasped the knowledge your standards require - distribute this formative assessment to see if students gained the the understanding you hoped they would.

I created this formative assessment on a half sheet - and then duplicated it as the same in the space below. I liked to make a short stack of copies of these - then cut them in half - and then accessible to me if/when the need to assess my students would present itself.

This formative assessment is easy to use, self explanatory, and then a quick read for the teacher. Students will respond to their learning today by focusing on what they did not understand about the teacher's lesson. It is critical to student success that the teacher knows exactly what it is that their students know and don't know. The teacher collects them - maybe does a sort - or learns if there are any gaps in his/her students' learning. I never took grades on formative assessments. After reading your students' responses - the information you gather could guide or redirect your instruction with those students.

- The preview is showing a portion of the actual formative assessment tool.
