Rate your Understanding

Do you use formative assessments in your classroom? I use it all the time to gauge what my kids are learning....There are many ways to do a quick check - and my favorite is through a simple rate your understanding activity.

In the younger grades you may do visual thumbs up for a checkin.

Some students aren't  comfortable having this information so visible to others...especially in the upper grades. I recognize that and so another option is to have the students write on their paper - U for up, S for sorta, and D for down. My students like this because it is more private and personal. We use this code on our papers, on exit cards, on sticky notes or whatever you wish...
