Reply To: 3.3 – Checks for Understanding


My top 5 checks for understanding include 1) exit tickets given after a lesson, 2) white boards to assess students real-time problem solving strategies in addition to their conceptual understanding (pictorial representations), 3) 1-4 check-in in which students rate themselves 1-4 to demonstrate how they feel about their knowledge after a lesson, 1 being I don’t feel confident in the content I just learned and 4 being I can teach this toa peer, 4) colored cards, which I haven’t implemented in the classroom, but I like the idea of students being grouped based on their conceptual understanding of a certain topic, and 5) teacher observation, which I feel I can best gather during small groups, when I can see students work through and process problems more closely.
