Web-based Activity: Formative Assessments

Posted on 05/22/2017

In the May 2017 Web-based activity article, Susan Coulter posits that formative assessments are a quick snapshot of student learning, which then allows you to change the course of the lesson to address those gaps in understanding. Formative assessments are used to differentiate learning and guide instruction. In this article, we will look at three different assessment tools, how they differ and how you can use them effectively in your classroom.

Susan goes on to describe useful sites such as: Kahoot, Quizizz, and Socrative.

You can find step-by-step instructions and ideas for activities in this May Web-based Activity article.
