Here are some of the assessments that I have used in my internship:

  • Pamphlets
  • Posters
  • KWL charts
  • Writing Prompts
  • Thumbs up, down, sideways
  • Questioning
  • Exit Slips
  • Email me
  • Quiz
  • Worksheets
  • Skits
  • Discussions
  • Checklists
  • Interviews
  • Research Projects
  • Circle Talks
  • Graffiti Wall
  • Cut and Paste
  • Collages
  • Games

The one formative assessment that I found the students responded really well to was the “thumbs up, down and sideways.” The students really enjoyed that I genuinely wanted to know if they liked an activity and what we could do differently to make it even better. I was in a split class of grades 3,4, and 5, but I also had the opportunity to work with grades k-2 as well. I found lot’s of these assessments worked well with the younger and older students.

Here are some of the assessment pieces I used for my grade 3-5’s:
