Engaging the Adolescent Learner

Checking for Understanding: Continuous Formative Assessment

Douglas Fisher & Nancy Frey


Here Fisher and Frey focus on a number of formative assessment ideas you can use to check for understanding with oral language activities, nonverbal cues, questioning, and writing. Use these new spins on retelling, exit slips, student-generated questions, and more to gauge student learning in real time so you can adjust instruction accordingly.
