Daniel Rimmereid's curator insight, March 25, 2014 9:24 PM

This blog post by Larry Ferlazzo is a great resource. On this blog he gives a short synopsis of what formative assessment is and then he creates a sort of “best of” list of the websites and articles that have helped him think and plan for formative assessment. I think something that he has taught me has been showing me all that formative assessment can teach. It not only helps the students know where they are at but more importantly lets the teacher know where their students are at. It is very important for teachers to not just formally assess their students but to then take the information and let it change the way they are teaching. This will allow a teacher to react to changes and better help their students learn the material.

The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer

The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer | Assessment vs. reputation | Scoop.it

The Question Every Assessment Should Be Able To Answer

The difference between assessment of learning and assessment for learning is a crucial one, in many ways indicative of an important shift in education.

 

Traditionally, tests have told teachers and parents how a student “does,” then offers a very accessible point of data (usually percentage correct and subsequent letter grade) that is reported to parents as a performance indicator.

 

Class data can be gathered to imply instructional effectiveness, and the data from multiple classrooms can be combined to suggest the performance of an entire school, but a core message here is one of measurement and finality: this is how you did. This was the bar, and you either cleared it or you didn’t.

And it’s all past tense.

Integrated Project/Problem-based learning can be modified to add an additional deeper learning aspect. With Problem based learning there are elements of both collaborative and individual learning within the "problem".
