Step 3: Formative Assessment

Identifying the needs of students is an important component of flexible grouping. Student needs are identified through formative assessments aligned to the identified Learning Goals.

There are many opportunities and methods of collecting assessment information:

  • Pre-assessment of the students’ prior knowledge and skills related to the established Learning Goals.
  • Assessment prompts throughout the lesson targeted to specific Learning Goals.
  • Summarizing activities at the end of a lesson to assess multiple Learning Goals.
