Assessments in Guided Math

Have you been wondering about assessments in guided math?

Assessment gives us guidance to developing effective instruction. 
When you start planning a unit, do take a close look at the standards, identify what students need to learn, then decide how to assess & evaluate your students' learning? 

Chapter 8 is all about using assessments in the framework of Guided Math. I had a few "take aways":
  1. Have clear expectations & communicate these to your students. I admit, I'm not sure I communicate academic expectations as clearly as I could to my kiddos. Something I need to work on.
  2. Students should participate in the creation of rubrics & checklists. I have a friend who does this & swears by it. 
  3. Provide descriptive feedback. Feedback needs to be more than correct/incorrect.
