Using Formative Assessment for Student Learning
Engage with students during the learning process to improve student achievement.
Research shows that formative assessment
has the power to significantly improve student learning and the National
Council of Teachers of Mathematics strongly endorses the integration of
formative assessment strategies into daily instruction.
Join us in Richmond for this preconference workshop, designed for educators of grades 3-8, that will
give you the models and strategies you need to successfully implement
effective formative assessment in order to guide future instruction and
move student learning forward.
To learn more about the role of formative assessment in mathematics education download the NCTM position statement on formative assessment.
- Explore a variety of formative assessment strategies that provide
ways to gather evidence of student progress within content areas
(number, algebra, geometry and measurement)
- Explore how to use this evidence to inform teaching and support student learning
- Reflect upon ways to structure classrooms in order to allow for high quality formative assessment to occur
Who Should Attend
- Grades 3-8 teachers
- Mathematics coaches, specialists
