Assessments For Learning
How to use these strategies!
Effectiveness in the classroom.
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.
Green-you got it
Yellow- I missed something
Red-You lost me
Students taking control of their own learning.
C3B4ME this was an excellent way to tell students to look somewhere else before having the teacher help you. Allow yourself to grow and find our answers. Also, take control of your learning by keeping a log book where you can track your learning on the daily basis.
Formative Assessments are test or notes that are done by the teacher and during class time. When I am teaching if we hear a child say something very clear. An example of this is I don't like that we write it down and put it in their portfolio as an anecdotal note.
Summative Assessments are more formal and state wide and nation wide. An example of these types of test is SAT and ACT.
I like both styles because I feel they are what you might see more of in the public shool system. However, I feel that formative is better because you are going by what the student is putting forth into their work and learning. With the summative you lose sight of what the student are learning because not everyone test well and you loose what they truly know and what they have learned from you as their teacher.
Formative and Summative Assessments within the classroom.
They are both used and implemented into many classrooms all the time. Teachers are always observing and noticing things about their students this is formative. Then after we look close, we might see something is off and test them then it because summative. So we as educators have to use both if we want to help our students succeed in life.
