8 Google Forms Formative Assessment Tips If you use Google Forms for formative assessment quizzes here are some tips for managing the resulting spreadsheet. When organizing data it is important that your data match. Trying to sort data by student name can be sketchy when students type in their own name. They might use “Robert” one day and “Bob” another. They may simply misspell their name. While I do not need the students ID number it is harder for students to get creative in how they fill it out.
Examples of Formative Assessment When incorporated into classroom practice, the formative assessment process provides information needed to adjust teaching and learning while they are still happening. The process serves as practice for the student and a check for understanding during the learning process. The formative assessment process guides teachers in making decisions about future instruction. STEM Gives Meaning to Mathematics - National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Understanding involves making connections” (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics [NCTM] 2000, p. 64). Challenging students with important mathematics prepares them to solve problems in class and at home. NCTM’s Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (2000) outlines five Process Standards that are essential for developing deep understanding of mathematics: 1. Problem Solving 2. Reasoning and Proof 3.
50 Digital Education Tools and Apps for Formative Assessment Success The beauty of formative assessment is that there is no shortage of strategies and techniques available to teachers to use in their classroom. They provide teachers the valuable feedback they need to adjust their teaching so student learning moves forward. Today, digital tools available in smartphones and tablets make implementing formative assessment as easy and effective as ever. Back in April, we updated our growing list of digital formative assessment tools and it’s time to update that list again.
Brain Teasers Sliding Triangle The triangle at left lies on a flat surface and is pushed at the top vertex. The length of the congruent sides does not change, but the angle between the two congruent sides will increase, and the base will stretch. Initially, the area of the triangle will increase, but eventually the area will decrease, continuing until the triangle collapses. What is the maximum area achieved during this process?
New Jersey State Academic Standards: Mathematics New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards Mathematics Introduction For more than a decade, research studies of mathematics education in high-performing countries have concluded that mathematics education in the United States must become substantially more focused and coherent in order to improve mathematics achievement in this country. Beyond Assessment: 3 Other Uses for Socrative This is a guest post from Beth Holland (@brholland) of EdTechTeacher, an advertiser on this site. Socrative is a free student response system that works on any device. With its built-in quick questions and quiz options, it is an incredible resource for formative and summative assessments. However, Socrative can be used for more than just quizzes.
Model Curriculum: Mathematics (K-12) Mathematics (K-12) REVISED Model Curriculum – June 2014 The model curriculum is intended as a tool to support districts in their own curricular planning. QR Code Quest Scavenger Hunt- Part Deux! I updated & improved my QR Code Quest Scavenger Hunt lesson I previously blogged about this year & used it again with my AWEsome ESOL kids & 6th graders. I wanted to share those changes with you because it seems as if you like QR codes! Of my top 5 most viewed blog posts 3 have to do with QR codes (and yes, you know I'm barmy for 'em!) 5 Fantastic, Fast, Formative Assessment Tools I thought I could read my students' body language. I was wrong. As an experiment, I used Socrative when I taught binary numbers. What I learned forever changed my views on being a better teacher. Why Formative Assessment Makes Better Teachers
Standards for Mathematical Practice "Does this make sense?" Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution.
