This Month's Focus: Formative Assessment in a Virtual Classroom

As teachers, we rely heavily on formative assessment to check for understanding in the classroom. One of the most widely used and easiest to do is observation. However, in a virtual setting observation is challenging due to students not having cameras on, unable to see student work, and limited meeting times. So what do we do?!

Fortunately, there are many digital tools at our fingertips. Below are descriptions on how to use some digital tools that are readily available to our region and easy to use. In order to not overwhelm yourself but still keep routines and variety for your students, select two to three tools that work well for your online teaching style.
