Hands-On Learning to Support Formative Assessment
Formative assessment is a powerful tool for improving teaching and increasing student learning. The four-part Formative Assessment Webinar Series, presented by the Implementing Common Core Standards in Math community on edWeb.net, explores strategies for strengthening the role of formative assessment in mathematics instruction. In the third interactive session, Dr. Sara Delano Moore, Ph. D., Director of Mathematics and Science at ETA hand2mind, focused on the use of manipulatives to support formative assessment. For many students, hands-on tools are a way to make their thinking visible. By including manipulatives as a routine part of instruction, teachers and students create opportunities for insight. View the webinar recording to learn strategies for including hands-on instruction as a formative assessment tool in your classroom at any level.
