  4. 4. ASSESSMENT Not A Bad Word Frequent and varied assessment is KEY inlearning. Teachers & students can evaluatewhere they need interventions and support. Formative assessment with immediate feedbackhas shown to improve learning and retention. How can I conduct frequent, effective, andsound assessment within my already limitedtime and without feeling overwhelmed? CC"BY%NC%ND"2012"by"Catherine"Flippen"
  5. 5. DATA & RESEARCH Easier Than You Think Just because you grade and assess, does not mean that you truly KNOW how EACH student is progressing or what they do/do not know. Formative assessments are FREQUENT and SHORT. They give instant feedback to both the teacher and student to see where student is struggling. How can I conduct class-based research that is will improve my instruction without being too challenging and time consuming? CC"BY%NC%ND"2012"by"Catherine"Flippen"
