πŸ“‘ 8 Quick Checks for Understanding

Bookmarked 8 Quick Checks for Understanding by Jay McTighe (George Lucas Educational Foundation)

Formative assessment is a proven technique for improving student learning, and the strategies shared here by Jay McTigheΒ work both in the classroom and remotely.

Jay McTighe provides a list of eight formative assessment techniques that can be used for quick pulse checks:

  • Ask students to display a designated hand signal to indicate
  • Present students with a few binary-choice statements
  • Have students create a visual or symbolic representation
  • Present students with a common misconception or a frequent procedural error
  • Have students regularly summarize what they are learning
  • Ask students to find or create new and novel examples to illustrate a newly learned concept
  • Ask students to teach a new concept or skill to someone else
  • Invite students to develop an analogy or metaphor to illustrate a newly learned concept or skill

I feel the right technique often depends on the context and situation, online included. For example, I remember using misconceptions in mathematics andΒ  response systems for exit tickets.
