Formative assessment is frequently thought of as something “extra” when really it should be integral to what teachers and students are actually doing within a mathematics lesson. Skip Fennell, Beth Kobett, and Jon Wray show that when used regularly, the Formative 5 assessment techniques represent viable, classroom-validated, in-the-moment practices for monitoring your students’ mathematics learning and identifying your instructional next steps.

This On-Your-Feet Guide provides:

  • A brief look at each of five every-day formative assessment techniques: Interviews, Observations, Show Me, Hinge Questions, and Exit Tasks
  • Critical questions and tools for implementing each technique.
  • Special considerations and ways to assess your effectiveness in order to plan your next mathematics lesson.
  • Brief videos with comments from authors and teachers along with classroom footage showing the Formative Five in action.
  • Using the Formative 5 daily in your planning and teaching will truly influence student learning.
