Deepen scientific understanding with formative assessment!
Only by knowing what your students are thinking can you design learning opportunities that deepen content mastery and meet their individual needs. In this highly engaging resource, internationally respected expert Page Keeley shares 50 new techniques to pinpoint student understanding before, during, and after instruction. In addition to promoting best practices in the classroom, the techniques shared here support learning and link instruction to the Next Generation Science Standards. These flexible assessments can be used with any science curriculum, along with
- Practical strategies for using the techniques throughout the instruction cycle
- Considerations for implementation and suggestions for modification
- An explanation of how each technique promotes learning
- Examples of how the techniques can be used in different content areas
