Formative Assessment - Jim Huber
Formative assessments are dynamic strategies that not only help students engage and become responsible for their own learning, but also provide the instructor with valuable data critical to making informed decisions regarding instruction. If you are looking for active, engaging (and dare we say, even fun) instructional strategies you can begin using in your classroom immediately, this is a workshop for you.
