I get lost easily. A few years I spend one half hour in getting from point A to point B in a large city because I kept on getting lost.
I wonder how lost most of our students are when we give them feedback such:
Think /Think it through!
Redo/ Revise / Rewrite!
Reread the chapter/handout!
Look it over!
Do it right!
Using formative assessment we give them precise suggestions that guide them in their improvement. Our formative feedback does not leave them wondering what to do.
Do you have other words that you will no longer use as you change to formative assessment?
