When you respond to student work (oral or written) with feedback that helps them to improve academically, you are using formative assessment.
I’ll share some ways to use PowerPoint for implementing formative assessment in your classroom.
Share your daily learning goals with your students as the first screen of your lesson PowerPoint. A business teacher might write “Write a direct request order letter.” Make sure it is a language that they can understand it.
Share your assessments with your students. Make sure they understand the checklist or rubric. Make sure that the checklist or rubric really tells them what is expected so that they will specifically know what to do to improve.
Give them a pre-test with a few questions. Select two or three critical questions or those which usually show student confusion about the topic.
Show them the answer to a homework problem with an exemplar.
Give them a structured scaffolded way to think through a problem or activity. You can go step-by-step (screen by screen) through the process that takes them from the lowest level of thinking (Knowledge) up to the highest levels (Synthesis and Evaluation).
Provide them with a short peer or self-assessment to monitor their own progress.
