This link takes you to formative assessment topics on the W. VA DOE website. Each topic is linked to a page with additional information on the topic.
The Guardian Recognising the power of voice recording The Guardian These recordings are ideal to include in an e-portfolio and are excellent for assessment purposes, especially formative assessments.
Some of this is not as useful, but I do like the e-portfolio idea (with or without the "e"). I like the concept of the passport - a description of the student's ability level, the biography - a list of "can do" statements describing the students abilities, and the dossier - evidence work of the biography.

Some insight to using video as a form of formative assessment. For our BC schools with DE Streaming, the ability of students to "dub over" downloaded video can make for an excellent way to guage student understanding of subject matter.
When we think about all the different ways we check for understanding in the classroom, a go-to strategy for many teachers has always been the exit slip or exit ticket.
Good ideas for using exit slips in formative assessments.
Formative assessment began long before blended learning. But formative assessment is particularly in the spotlight now because it features so prominently in emerging blended learning programs.
I don't agree with the "third party" reference to NWEA, DEA, Acuity, etc. To me these are more interim instead of formative.
Still, there is some good information about formative instruction and blended learning in this article.
Two teachers from Clear Creek ISD believe a natural next step to teaching with mobile technology is to use it in shaping instruction through formative assessments.
Moving technology away from classroom response systems.
This is a short document with a good descriptor of formative assessment and an example of usage for K-5 Common Core math skills. The rubric used to score this process is an interesting approach.
Good description of formative assessment.
In this video clip, Heather Wolpert-Gawron discusses creating new kinds of formative assessments that assess skills and thought process, not just content.
Socrative is a smart student response system that empowers teachers to engage their classrooms through a series of educational games and exercises via smartphones and tablets. Our apps are super simple and take seconds to load and run.
It should be illegal to buy a student iPad with the Socrative app not already installed. $1000+ classroom response systems are now a thing of the past with this free app. You can poll your classes on yes/no, true/false, and multiple choice questions. The Socrative teacher app gives you instant bar graph feedback from each student. There is also a quiz builder that teachers can "pre-build" and students can complete at their own pace. Socrative will even grade the non-subjective answers (short answer, fill in the blank,...) for you!
An exit ticket builder and competitive game builder is also included in this free app.

This is a webinar playback from a NCTE sponsored professional development on formative assessment. It is just under an hour in length, but would be worth your time to watch.
"If you are looking for a new formative assessment tool check out Understoodit https://understoodit.com/ .

Understoodit is a perfect piece of technology that moves far beyond what clickers can provide. You get real time feedback. I wonder if the graphic can be enbedded into presentation software?
This sounds like it might be what I have been looking for.
Another interesting possibility. However, it costs am worried about how these continue to create a market place out becomes too expensive.
Formative assessments are simply little gauges or indicators of how students are progressing towards a learning goal. It could be anything from a simple conversation to something like a clickers or response via a website.
My goal is to never be so far removed from the classroom that I forget what it's like to be a teacher. Over the last few weeks while I've been adjusting to my job and new responsibilities, I've be...

This is a great visual tool for ongoing use of formative assessment in a third grade classroom.
