Assessments For Learning

Effectiveness in the classroom.

Having a multi-student discussion within the classroom allows for a more enhanced learning. Allowing the students to have an interactive classroom where it's more like a jeopardy type of education builds on the discussion, instead of asking the question they are learning and answering.

Feedback that moves learning forward.

Feedback is not about what you give to the student but what the teacher gains from the class. That means what you are learning from their collected work and using that to modify your lesson plans based on the needs of the students.

Activating students

Yellow- I missed something

Red-You lost me

Formative and Summative Assessments within the classroom.
