Every Teacher’s Guide to Assessment It’s not a stretch to say that assessment is a hot button issue in education; however, you’d be hard pressed to find an educator who doesn’t see the value in measuring student progress. Assessments themselves have been vilified, when, in fact, it’s why assessments are given and how the data is used that is really the issue. The Glossary of Education Reform gives this great overview of what high-stakes testing is and how it impacts students, teachers, and schools. Basically, high-stakes testing has consequences for the test-takers and givers—sometimes in the form of a high school diploma, grade advancement, and even teachers’ salaries.

He used a sticky-note version of an exit ticket to elicit evidence of student learning and in his words, “what a difference that made.” Formative assessment is ‘easier than you think’ and with all the digital tools and apps now available for mobile devices it’s even easier. We’ve shared some digital tools before and with the five tools that Steven shared combined with our earlier suggestions there are now 33 digital tools that we’ve uncovered that are free or inexpensive and help teachers implement formative assessment in their classrooms.

QuizStar Instructor Login Beginning November 1, 2009 we will once again be able to offer QuizStar free of charge. QuizStar was originally created as a grant-funded, free online tool. When the project funding ended, we moved to a subscription-based service in order to continue to support and update the project. Recently, we made the decision to move away from a paid subscription service and instead use online advertising to allow all educators to enjoy unlimited free access to QuizStar, just like the other 4Teachers.org tools. Ads will be placed on Instructor pages and login pages, but not on the quizzes that students take. Send us feedback.
