Hi all,

I've created a presentation (with some help from my colleagues) on different examples of formative assessment. You can view it here: https://docs.google.com/presentation/pub?id=1nzhdnyMQmio5lNT75ITB45rHyLI...

Note the definition I'm using at the beginning of the presentation: A formative assessment or assignment is a tool teachers use to give feedback to students and/or guide their instruction. It is not included in a student grade, nor should it be used to judge a teacher's performance. Both of these would be considered summative assessments.

Thank you for this fine document. With your kind permission, I have used this during Intern seminars to help my novice teachers understand the many different ways to assess student learning to determine any adjustments needed for instruction. I have passed this on to my fellow Clinical Instructors.

Great set of resources for Formative Assessment. We talked about this in a recent New Teacher Chat #ntchat and had some great responses. One of the faves of many New T's are the use of mini whiteboards to check for understanding. There are some great ones on this pinterest link: http://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=formative%20assessment I especially like the idea of Think-Pair-Share. We need to get kids talking to each other more!
