Formative Assessment

Corkboard

Corkboard would be a great activator to post anything you know about a topic. It could also be a place to put evaluations about a book, feedback about a partner's performance, and opinions about a topic.

Quizlet

Students could use this to practice vocabulary terms and spelling words. It would also be a good place for students to write questions and post answers to recall questions for their partners to use to match. Examples would be to match characters to their descriptions, match math facts and answers, etc. The matching game would serve as a self-assessment for students to check their understanding.

This is a quiz that students could take so the teacher could determine if students understood the main concepts of the Matter unit to that point. The teacher could use the results to determine if s/he would reteach, move-on or enrich.

Discovery Education

This is a quiz that students could take so the teacher could determine if students understood the main concepts of the Animal Adaptation unit to that point. The teacher could use the results to determine if s/he would reteach, move-on or enrich specific students. I would check my scores under the My Classrooms tab.

At least 3 done...great descriptions, links work. Great job! Let me know if I can help with anything else. - Bryan

Becki - your descriptions are great by explaining to me how you would use the tools formatively!
