A method for keeping track of formative assessment in any content area. Contains two tracking sheets for the skill or strategy to be assessed, one with Exceeds, Meets, and Working Toward and one with Meets, Nearly Meets, and Working Toward; and two sheets of student note cards to copy and cut out, one with names on the front, one with names on the back.
Print your preferred Show What You Know Card sheet to make enough for your class (8 per sheet).
Print the preferred Show What You Know planning sheet for the content area and decide the skill you will assess.
Determine the question you will ask and fill out ahead of time, or ask on the spot based on what your students need.
Ask the students to write their answer on their cards, and if you choose the no-name card, make sure they write their name on the back (this is helpful to display on the board to discuss their thinking without names showing).
Collect the cards and determine if the students are exceeding, meeting, or working toward mastery of the strategy or skill.
Attach the stacks in the correct area of the tracking sheet and staple them down if you want to keep the answers, write student names in the corresponding box, and determine a possible next step for instruction: whole class, small group, or individually.
Math exit tickets, Math “My Favorite No”, read aloud strategy notes, content area vocabulary check, formative check-in before instruction, student self-assessment of group participation, and many more!
