Donny Anderson's insight:

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.

These recordings are ideal to include in an e-portfolio and are excellent for assessment purposes, especially formative assessments.
Donny Anderson's insight:

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.

Formative Assessment Is Foundational to Blended Learning -- THE Journal

Formative Assessment Is Foundational to Blended Learning -- THE Journal | Classroom Formative Assessment | Scoop.it
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.

Via Dennis T OConnor
Donny Anderson's insight:

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.

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.
Donny Anderson's insight:

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.
