Reflection: Continuous Assessment Comparing Rational Numbers - Section 5: Closing and Exit Ticket


Throughout a lesson, I am assessing the level of mastery for all of my students in a variety of ways.  I gather a ton of data on my students every day.  

While they are working in partners and independently, I circulate around the room and look at the work of all of my students.  I also ask students questions that give me insight into their understanding of the material.

The Check for Understanding is a more formal pause in my lesson.  If the data I get suggests that the entire class needs more help, I will provide more guidance before independent practice.  The CFU also highlights for me students who may need more support at the start of independent practice.

I use engaging ways for students to quickly share data with me, too.  In this lesson, students show me thumbs up or down.  Sometimes, I have them clap for their answer choice or whisper a number.  I infuse a bit of joy into the lesson, while also doing a quick whole-class check.

All of my lessons have formal assessments at the end, in the form of exit tickets.  These give me individual data on student mastery.  I also can look to see how students are making sense of problems and representing the given information.
