Educators speak about formative assessment in their classrooms....
Ms. Cortes uses formative assessment to activate her students as supporters of each others' learning. In this short video, she describes her students' experiences.
Everything was organized, quick paced, easy to use…and the training was obviously VERY well-planned! The three of you have great “chemistry” and it shows! Thank you for providing us with some of the most useful training ever…I plan to use this with my college students also!
"Building on the simple concept that we really need to know where the learners are in their understanding, not just at the beginning or end of a lesson, but throughout the learning process, Sandy Snow and Karen Vance masterfully immerse teachers and instructional leaders in the art of formative assessment. While some professional development is destined to be an "event" and will, ultimately, have little to no impact on classroom instruction, Snow and Vance take learners on a journey—one that invites practice, reflection, implementation, and a return to reflection. Participants are able to move beyond theory to practice that is as easy to implement as anything I have experienced."
