7 Formative Assessment: Why? … students taught by teachers who used assessment for learning achieved in six or seven months what would otherwise have taken a year… - Dylan Wiliam

9 Think -Write -Pair -Share Please go to the Think-Write-Pair Share link on the wiki and answer one of the two questions using the discussion board provided. What are the differences between active participation and formative assessment? What is the difference between spontaneous formative assessment and planned formative assessment?
10 Formative Assessment Definition Formative assessment is a planned process in which assessment-elicited evidence of students status is used by teachers to adjust their ongoing instructional procedures or by students to adjust their current learning tactics.
11 Group Challenge!! Select a group member to complete a mystery task. While that person leaves the room, others add to the chart in the front of the room.
12 Role Play: CIA What data did you COLLECT as you watched the activity? How did you INTERPRET that information? How did you ACT to improve the chances of success?
13 Reflection Think about these prompts in order to respond to the final question. When do you provide feedback to your students? What kind of feedback do you typically provide? What is your feedback based upon? How does feedback impact your students learning or performance?
14 PMI- Plus, Minus, Interesting Go to the resources link of the wiki and click on the link to the article, Feedback that Fits. Right-click to open the PMI chart. Fill it in as follows: Plus – a part that enriches your understanding. Minus – a part that challenges your thinking about Feedback Interesting – a part that you find particularly interesting. Think about how this could play out in your classroom.
15 Wrap-up: Feedback Watch video clip and take note of teacher feedback. Karate Kid Is the feedback specific? Timely? Criterion referenced?
16 3-2-1 Feedback On an index card please write… 3 Concepts that todays session validated from your prior understanding. 2 Ideas that you will use in the classroom. 1 Question you still have. Place these cards on the desk near the door.
17 ACT Feedback Announce your thinking (Metacognition) Connect student effort and result and/or what worked and why Feedback that is timely, specific and helps student see the relationship between their efforts and the products, thinking, performances they produce Take the next step that moves the learning forward
18 4 Steps to Check for Understanding Step 4: ACT To be formative, assessment must include a recipe for future action…the goal is for the learner to use the information to make improvements. Dylan Wiliam, 2004
19 ACT Feedback 3 Examples Interpret Results Feedback to Promote Action On Target You are all right on target. A neighborhood is a place where people live, play and work together. Good job focusing this afternoon. Stick with me now as we do this last part. Restate Some of you have forgotten to use the factoring rules we reviewed at the beginning of class resulting in incomplete or incorrect answers. Listen to Julia as she explains number 9 and be ready to tell me what factoring rules apply to this problem. Reteach Many of you are confusing the present tense with the past tense when you are conjugating these verbs. Look up here as I review the three areas that distinguish the two tenses. Then well return to this work.
20 ACT What are some things you may do when some students get it and some do not? Share with a partner OR… type your thoughts in the chat on the Live Broadcast page of the wiki.
21 Application Time In the resources page of the wiki, open the document called Application and use it to develop one or two methods to check for understanding.
