Your Date with Slate - Stepping Stones Formative Assessment
View email in your browser
Hi <<First Name>>,
 
Welcome to our second date on Stepping Stones Assessment. On today's date we'll explore Formative Assessment. Formative Assessments are used to make informed decisions to guide instruction. These decisions range from reviewing concepts to providing additional work for students who require extra assistance or challenges.
 
Access to Formative Assessment can be made by following the pathway shown in the image below.
 

Formative Assessment can occur informally during lessons with observations of students working and their discourse, or formally with written instruments such as journal entries. Stepping Stones includes two different options for Formative Assessment: 
 
  • Observations and Discussions - provides suggestions for teachers on which lessons and activities are better suited to observe how students' understanding of concepts and skills are developing.
  • Journals and Portfolios - provides suggestions for teachers on which lessons and activities are better suited for generating work samples as evidence of the learning that has occurred.
