Have you ever given a formative assessment and not used the data? Technology has introduced a plethora of formative assessment options for teachers over the past few years. Follow formative assessments from start to finish and look at the most important part of a formative assessment—the results! Participants will be introduced to nontraditional types of formative assessments such as concept maps and games as a way to spot check students’ learning through a course of study. So let’s go beyond the game show and dive into the world of data-driven instruction.
In this webinar, learn how Cathie Gillner, an educator from Fox Chapel Area School District in Pittsburgh, PA and Common Sense Ambassador, uses concept mapping and games as formative assessments. Topics cover how to:
Pick the best formative assessments for your classroom
Use data to make meaningful experiences for students
Embed formative assessments into learning through concept mapping and games
Incorporate tools like BrainPOP, Socrative, Formative, Padlet, Seesaw, Rcap, Quizlet Live, Triventy, and Schoology in your formative assessments
All school personnel, including teachers, administrators, librarians, and tech coordinators, are invited to watch this recorded session.
