Marie Barchi models an effective process of formative assessment with her Algebra I students. During the lesson, Ms. Barchi assesses student readiness as they work problems so she can identify the type of exit card appropriate for each student based on where they are at in learning how to solve inequalities.She then quickly sorts the cards to identify which students are struggling and need additional support as well as which students provided average and above average work. As students enter the classroom, she directs them to one of three groups based on the information she gathered from their exit card assessment. This grouping allows for efficient and effective differentiation.

Feedback is a very important tool for assessment, and it has a significant impact on student achievement (0.7 effect size, Hattie). However, students need to know HOW to use that feedback to improve their work, and ultimately their success as a student. This is where Floop comes in!
"Floop is a web app that saves teachers time and helps students see the value in feedback.
Feedback is the #1 driver of student learning. Help create the three conditions for transformational feedback.
Actionable Information Students get the feedback they need, when they need it. Give feedback 4x faster than traditional methods with a digital dropbox and comment banks.
Agency to Act Students engage with their feedback while it's still relevant. Help students act on feedback through conversations and resubmissions.
Feedback Literacy Students learn how to use feedback to grow. Empower students to give feedback through guided peer review. Coach along the way with feedback read receipts."

Educational Scavenger Hunts for the 21st Century!
This app helps you facilitate scavenger hunts, where teams of students compete to find items you assign (in the physical world), then take photo evidence at each point and post it on the app. The app then keeps track of team points so you know which team won by the end.
This tool could be used for teams to complete assessments, or to provide feedback and capture an snapshot of their current level of understanding of the material. Students could also CREATE these for summative assessments to share with their peers if centered around a topic of study in the classroom.

Sample Math Outcome Questions: An Assessment Resource for Teachers.
The resource Sample Math Outcome Questions: An Assessment Resource for Teachers:
• provides possible questions, sample responses and rubrics for classroom instruction and assessment. • is not mandatory. • was created to support the teaching and learning of mathematics. • can be adapted by teachers to meet the individual needs of their students. • can be used before, during and/or after classroom instruction as formative or summative assessment(s). • is designed to elicit responses that inform teachers’ understanding of the skills and concepts that students need to know, understand and are able to do.
This resource primarily assesses students using written response. Indicators that include terms such as research or collect data (for example) are ideally assessed by means other than a written response. Subsequently, teachers must keep in mind that using this resource provides only one of many forms of evidence that teachers collect to report on student achievement of the outcome.
Each sample includes the outcome, indicators, sample assessment and answer key.
