We will be discussing this in more detail at future staff meetings. The ideas that they bring back each month from the network, will be communicated to everyone via staff meetings or this blog. Below, I have included how Kenton County schools have structured a Formative Assessment Lesson which is part of the Math Design Collaborative.
The structure of a Formative Assessment Lesson:
- Students complete a pre-assessment which is given a day or two before the lesson and is used to gather data on students' current level of understanding and misconceptions. The teacher provides descriptive feedback to students to aid in moving the learner forward.
- Students participate in a collaborative activity to exchange constructive feedback with thier peers and resolve misconceptions through discussion.
- Students then have the opportunity to share thier findings and learn from other groups in a whole-class discussion whcih is student led, but carefully engineered by the teacher.
- Finally, students have the opportunity to return to the pre-assessment and revise their individual work to proficiency.
