Reflection: Data Analysis Description and Chronological Formative - Section 2: Independent Work


For the descriptive formative, my data showed 13 students received 4s, 13 received 2s and 4 received 3s. Since my data was almost evenly split, I'll need to revisit this concept during my workstations. Students who received 2s chose the 2nd paragraph because they feel it described what happened instead of passage 1 which describes the fire. We will be working more on that misconception in small groups in the coming days. 

The chronological formative showed that every student received a 4. The time order words within the paragraph were a good source of evidence.
