Enjoy and let me know how you are using it in your class. A lot of feedback says teachers like the product yet want premade so I am working on a hard product set version. Maybe sets of ten that can be shipped out. Let me know in the comments/questions if you like this idea.
*Updated instructions for template and provided a blank template without any instructions. Added thumbnail photos.
Included optional Motivation Chart you can attach to the bottom of the DeskDisk. It just got that much better!
With DeskDisk each of your students will have the power to assess themselves on their learning. The DeskDisk is a powerful formative assessment tool each of your students could have on their desk in a small non intrusive space allowing you to check for understanding without the "peer pressured" thumbs up/thumbs down, raise of hands, or call outs.
At a glance, know where your students are at in their learning throughout the day.
Each student will be able to display three levels of understanding during class. "I GOT THIS, I AM OK, I NEED HELP. Utilizing the DeskDisk will improve student's metacognitive skills including self assessment, reflection, and questioning what they know.
Teachers will be able to observe discreetly or directly individuals levels of learning and adapt for differentiation in instruction as needed. Great way to informally assess student's needs, difficulties, and mastery of skills.
Works amazing to assess ELL, LD, Gifted, and other mainstream learners. Can be used for teachers to assess individual students with SST, IEP, and 504 plans across multiple subject manners.
