ELA: Formative Assessment Quick Guide

Posted on Updated on

marzanoThis morning I’m excited to be teaming with reading teachers at Frederick Post Kindergarten. We’ll be exploring various formative assessment strategies designed to inform teacher instruction.

While searching for resources online, I stumbled upon a goldmine of formative assessment strategies put together by the State of Maryland International Reading Council. The guide lists 32 different strategies teachers and students can use to check for understanding as well as a short description of how to use each strategy.  The Formative Assessment Quick Guide is a must see tool if you get stuck in the same formative assessment ruts like I do!

What is your “go-to” formative assessment strategy or resource guide? I’m a big fan of Seven Strategies of Assessment for Learning by Jan Chappuis.  jennifer-signature
