ES1E-Checking In: The Power of Formative Assessments
Educators are typically much more likely to use summative assessments to analyze student achievement — measurements such as tests and projects that summarize student learning at the end of a unit. However, formative assessments — short checkpoints for learning throughout a unit — are often better at providing quick learning feedback for both teachers and students. This session will review the power of formative assessments in learning and provide practical strategies, ideas, and tools for making formative check-ins an important part of your classroom.
