We are excited to try a new program to help you plan your experience at the 2016 NESSC High School Redesign in Action Conference. PLEASE NOTE: That all sessions are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Adding a session to your personal agenda does not ensure yourself a seat in the session, but rather a way to help you plan where to head.

Formative Assessment and Teacher Feedback: What You Need to Know

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In Visible Learning for Teachers—which is based on a study of more than 900 meta-analyses representing well over 50,000 research articles and 240 million students—John Hattie describes what students want more than anything else in feedback they receive from teachers: they want to know how to improve their work so they can do better next time. Although many teachers incorporate formative assessment into their practice, these assessments don’t always give students the detailed feedback they want and need, and teachers don’t always use formative information to modify instruction. In this session, participants will explore the three elements that can increase the effectiveness of formative assessments: (1) using learning targets well, (2) giving valuable feedback, and (3) creating opportunities for re-teaching, interventions, and support in both classroom and school-wide practice.

In this session, participants will learn about a variety of structures and practices they can use to help students improve their work, strengthen their skills, and accelerate their learning.
