“How else can we ensure we are addressing students’ needs instead of simply teaching them what we think they need?” Genre: Education and Teaching. Number of Pages: 96. This book is meant to provide quick and easy formative assessments [ongoing assessments, observations, summaries, and reviews that inform the teacher’s instruction and provides students with feedback on a daily basis] for students in grades 3-8, but a few of them can be applied to older grades, especially as exit tickets. It also includes a CD of all of the forms, data collection sheets, and assessments to download, which is very easy and nice to have! This is a pretty short book. The first part talks about what formative assessments are and how to use them to inform your instruction. The second part is 25 examples of formative assessment. Each one contains a description of the strategy, step-by-step instructions, practical applications, tips for tiering, how to integrate technology, and samples of student work.
