What formative assessments do you use? What works best? What works for early primary? What works for intermediate? Tell me what you do. I feel the need to gather information. I feel the need to hear from others and say... "oh, yeah, I do that..." or "oh, I have never tried that," or "I don't do that but I do this...." I need my mind to be stimulated in the area of assessment. Help! Please!
Here is the writing rubric we adopted in my Kindergarten class last year. I downloaded it for free from owlbeteachingyou.blogspot.com. I wrote my own definitions. I think rubrics and teaching 6 trait writing are some of the best ways to assess in a more formal way.
|This is the rubric. I loved it. Students can measure their own progress and improve.|
|These are the definitions I wrote so I would maintain consistency.|
