Coaches’ Corner with Mari and Stephanie

In 2009, educational researcher John Hattie published Visible Learning which compiled more than 15 years of research involving millions of students. This is the one of the biggest (if not the biggest collection of evidence-based research about what actually works in schools to make learning better. Hattie identifies the top 20 influences on student learning and achievement, and… you guessed it… TEACHERS have the power to make a great deal of difference! At number 3 on the list is providing formative evaluation. There is no doubt that formative assessments provided to students on their journey to becoming proficient in a concept or standard is paramount to their success. There are all types of formative assessments, both formal and informal that we are all using, but click on the link below to take a peek at some of the tech tools available to use for formative assessment as well. We know our kids love their technology, so let’s use it for their educational advantage!
