PD Online: Formative Assessment and The Common Core Standards: Mathematics

The Formative Assessment and the Common Core Standards: Mathematics course is designed to inform participants about assessment practices to maximize student success within the context of Common Core State Standards (CCSS). After establishing a useful definition of formative assessment, we’ll explore how it can be most effectively used, and how to take the necessary steps to create formative assessments to inform both the teacher and the student of progress toward learning mastery. Common Core standards have been designed to reflect increased rigor and focus, signaling the importance of educational practices, such as formative assessment, that can promote students’ progress towards higher levels of achievement. Through in-depth readings, video examples, and practical applications you can use in your lesson planning and classroom instruction now, you’ll explore a range of formative assessments and how to implement them in your own practice.
