A Quick Look at Formative Assessment

Session 4: 10:15-11:45 AM (Thursday March 03, 2022)



Teachers use formative assessment to help identify student misconceptions, struggles, and learning gaps and assess how to close those gaps as they work in class with students and the material. In this session, we will look at some formative assessment tools that participants can use at the beginning, in the middle, and at the end of the class to help them understand where their students are and determine what to focus on to help students as they work with the lesson material. These formative assessment tools include poll and survey tools, video tools to present and assess simultaneously, slides tools to present and assess simultaneously, classic tools that educators have learned about during COVID-19 (e.g., Kahoot, Quizlet, Quizizz), and exit and entrance tickets. Participants will be able to practice using these tools during the session and understand how the teacher can use these tools in their own classroom.
