  40. 40. REFLECT! Remember assessments FOR learning are to help us know what we need to do, as teachers, to ensure our students are mastering the material. RECORD!

RE-ASSESS! Assessments for learning are done while the learning is happening! It is something that should be constant and building. This shows us what we need to do next. Show students the success they have made and help them take pride in it. This encourages confidence in the content and encourages them to keep striving!
