Common Core Learning Standards & Assessments - ELA

Formative Assessment Design: Teaching Students with Confidence Grades 3-8 Description: “We never learned that,” claims a student indignantly as the teacher reviews a previously taught concept. “But I taught it to you!” exclaims his teacher in frustration. Does this scenario sound familiar? Too often, teachers ARE teaching but students are NOT learning. This is why formative assessments are critical in classrooms. They guide teachers in making decisions about instruction, immediately and in the future. In this workshop, participants will examine various types of formative assessments and explore how teachers can increase understanding using these valuable tools. Participants will have the opportunity to design an assessment to bring back to the classroom for immediate use. Materials: Participants are asked to bring examples of formative assessments used in their classrooms.
