Formative Assessment

Formative assessment has been a hot topic for quite a few years now. For years, our principal expected to see teachers using formative assessment in their classrooms.

We attended several professional development courses on the topic but, unfortunately, we always left the courses feeling frustrated and empty handed. We wanted quick, easy strategies that we could implement with our students immediately.

We decided to take matters into our own hands to solve our problem. After months of researching and creating, we are SO EXCITED to announce that we now have the solution to implement fun, quick formative assessment strategies.

Formative assessment strategies are an awesome tool because:

  • They offer an informal way for teachers and students to track what students understand throughout a lesson in relation to the learning target/objective.
  • They guide teachers and students to make immediate adjustments throughout the lesson to better master the learning target/objective. 
  • They guide teachers to make informed decisions about when the time is right to move on to the next learning task or objective.  
  • They give students the opportunity to identify when they are struggling to understand the learning target/objective, allowing the teacher to address students’ needs by offering differentiation and specific feedback.
