Overview

Formative Assessment in Elementary Schools by Douglas and Frey Fisher, Nancy Frey

This laminated guide is an excellent classroom reference tool for elementary school teachers on how to use student data to make decisions about what should be taught next, and the way in which it should be taught. It provides a concise description of formative assessment and outlines a critical, continuous cycle of questions. In addition to relying upon questions to check for student understanding, the guide identifies other ways teachers should allow students to demonstrate learning. It also explains how teachers can gauge an appropriate level of useful, quality feedback and identifies various formats for delivering this feedback to students. Most importantly, the guide describes how to analyze student data and, on the basis of this analysis, develop an individualized plan for guided instruction that will broaden and deepen the student's conceptual understanding.
