Use these amazing scoresheets to track or tally student contributions to conversations. Use the data collected to help inform your teaching practice, to assist in writing narratives or report card comments, and also to more accurately and objectively grade class participation. There are 4 different scoresheets here that track a variety of student contributions and behaviors. Plus, there's even suggestions about using different symbols besides just tally marks. These are great examples that took me 11+ years to develop through trial and error.
