Plus, a series of Student Tools help teach formative assessment strategies that students can use after receiving an assignment, during instruction, while completing work, and before or after a summative assessment.
All tools include clear instructions for use, suggestions for variations, and guidance on next steps. Make sure you get enough copies so every teacher can quickly learn effective ways to improve their assessment practices—leading to more targeted instruction and meaningful learning for all students.
