Classroom-based formative assessments ‒ guiding teaching and learning. (English)
Teach. Child. Math. 21, No. 6, 325-327 (2015).
From the text: We have defined a small set of classroom-based formative assessment (CBFA) techniques that we think of as a “five-color palette" for teachers to use on a regular basis, sometimes mixing the “colors" to consider how best to assess teaching and learning, and using student responses to monitor and adjust instructional decision making during a lesson as well as to aid in planning. Each of the following techniques has roots within the formative assessment literature and should be considered daily as teachers plan and implement instruction: Observations; Interviews; Show Me activities; Hinge questions; Exit tasks. One way to organize this palette of assessments is by considering observations, interviews, and Show Me activities as assessments that monitor and guide classroom instruction that day; whereas responses to hinge-point questions and exit tasks help assess daily progress and more directly influence planning for the next day’s lesson. We will further discuss two of these techniques, the Show Me method and the hinge-questions method.
