The Formative 5 Book
NCTM Past President, Francis “Skip” Fennell, and nationally-recognized mathematics educators Beth McCord Kobett and Jonathan (Jon) Wray, offer five of the most impactful, proven assessment techniques—Observations, Interviews, “Show Me,” Hinge Questions, and Exit Tasks— you can implement, every day.
K-8 teachers of mathematics will learn to
- Focus on assessment for learning rather than assessment of learning
- Directly connect assessment to planning and in-the-moment instruction
- Implement effective classroom questioning, discussions, and learning tasks
- Provide success criteria and feedback that moves students forward
- Integrate the Standards for Mathematical Practice
- Activate student self-assessors who take ownership of their learning
Includes a book study guide, tools and templates, and a companion website with downloadables and multi-media examples of student discussion in the classroom. The Formative 5 will help you build your mathematics-related formative assessment capacity through daily use of these five key techniques.
