I found this strategy for checking for understanding from Judith Dodge’s 25 Quick Formative Assessment Strategies for a Differentiated Classroom. My staff and I used this to assess prior knowledge from our first technology night. The fifteen minutes we spent discussing these topics created a nice transition to our next learning target as we explore digital student portfolios.
Here are some ways my staff thought we could use this in any classroom:
as a preassessment
to review for a summative assessment
to foster peer dialogue
to clear up confusion
to engage active learners
How might you use this in staff development and/or the classroom? Please share in the comments.
