This is Part 2 of a new two-part training on formative assessment. Developed by Andy Nash, Director of the New England Literacy Resource Center, this training prepares instructors to create and use formative assessment as part of daily standards-based instruction.
This professional development activity/course is designed for:
- Math teachers at all levels
Part 2 of this content-based training, facilitated by math content expert Sarah Lonberg-Lew, focuses on applying what you learned in Part 1 about standards-based formative assessment to your own math lessons. In this session, you will use a guiding process to create formative assessments that address both the College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education (CCRSAE) and your own lesson objectives. You are expected to bring a real lesson for which you would like to develop a formative assessment tool or process, and to report a month later on its implementation.
Part 1 is a prerequisite to attending Part 2.
Part 1 will be held on May 11, 2018, and you must register for Part 1 separately via the Part 1 event page.
To register for Part 2, select the Register tab above.
Upon completion of this professional development activity/course, you will be able to:
- Develop CCRSAE-aligned formative assessment tools and processes for math.
- Create unit- or lesson-specific formative assessments that provide information on what students know and can do
- Complete Using Formative Assessment in Standards-Based Instruction: Part 1 on May 11, 2018
- Bring a lesson for which you would like to plan formative assessment
