Formative Assessment Made Easy: Impacting Literacy Across Content Areas

April 21, 2020
8:30 am - 2:30 pm

at the Southwest Plains Conference Center
810 W. Lark Avenue, Sublette

Formative assessment has a potential effect size of .90 (Hattie, 2012) making it among the most powerful influences on student achievement. That alone would warrent close attention, but this workshop will demonstrate how to use formative assessment to drive your instruction and how many of the tactics engage students in higher order thinking. Giving students multiple opportunities for retrieval practice promotes long term learning, and providing teachers with timely information about student learning promotes differentiation. All participants will receive a copy of the book Checks for Understanding: 65 Classroom Ready Tactics, Formative Assessment Made Easy.

Participants will leave having practiced many of the formative assessments and will take with them the book describing many more.

Who Should Attend: All K-12 teachers
