Formative Assessment - Reading

What is the "Formative assessment" instructional strategy?

With "Formative Assessment", the teacher regularly assesses student performance related to expectations.  The key is to assess throughout instruction, either in the form of a formal test or informal observation of student performance during practice, as a means of planning for future instruction.  This ensures that instruction is delivered at a level that is appropriate for facilitating success.

What are the "Reading" instructional strategy videos?

The Reading videos focus on the application of the entire range of Primary Level strategies in the context of reading instruction.  The videos represent a cross section of student ages, abilities, and group sizes.

The following is a list of all of the Primary Level training videos  involving the "Formative Assessment" instructional strategy within a Reading instructional focus that are available for viewing.
