Formative Assessments are so important in instruction! There are a lot of high tech ways of doing them, but if you need a quick way and do not have the technology, this sure will help! Just pose a multiple choice question or use one provided by a worksheet or test. Students then turn their page to the answer. I have put up the right letter or number under their chin. In small groups you can just have students point to the answer. So that students cannot look at other for the answers, they cannot put their answer up until I say, “show me.”
Then I collect the data using a clipboard to quickly note which students will need remediation after the lesson.
