Reflection: Exit Tickets Photosynthesis - A WISE Activity (Day 2) - Section 4: Closure


Like all formative assessments, the chain note is not a true formative assessment unless the information gained from it is used to inform your instruction. What do I learn from the chain-notes the students have created so far?

Students have a clear understanding of the following:

  • Light energy is transformed into different types of energy.
  • Light energy breaks the bonds in the carbon dioxide and water.
  • Too much light energy "kills" the plant.
  • The amount of light energy affects the amount of glucose.

Overall, the chain note indicates that the students are ready to proceed, although I know that I will need to visit with a group to clarify the statement "When the plant has no light it takes energy by killing parts of itself".
