Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Research tells us with great clarity that formative assessment and quality, timely feedback are two of the highest yield strategies at any teacher's fingertips. Math teachers have the opportunity to take these strategies to the next level of effectiveness by pairing them with noncognitive factors such as student ownership and reflection.

In this session, I'll share knowledge and tools to re-vision the formative assessment process, moving the locus of control to the student. Traditionally, teachers administer assessments, assign grades, and move on. In lieu of that, I'll present a new model in which students collect and analyze their own data, self-select into intervention and enrichment activities, and engage in reflection that impacts future performance. Data DIY is all about feedback and all about putting assessment in the hands of the primary consumer: the student.

Note: please bring an upcoming classroom or common formative assessment to session. You'll first engage in the Data DIY process in the role of a student, then have the opportunity to apply your learning by following the process with the assessment you've brought.
