Here is a description of the question above:
This Mastery Check gives you an opportunity to describe what you believe educators should mean when they refer to “formative assessment.” Ideally, not only will your brief description of formative assessment be accurate, but you will be able to mentally retain that description, or a paraphrase of the description. Your personal familiarity with what formative assessment is/isn’t ought to be should truly be lifelong understanding. Imagine that you are a teacher taking part in the winter “Back-to-School Night” your school sponsors for parents every fall, winter, and spring. Your principal has asked you to serve as one of 15 faculty members who will supply 20-minute explanations of some features of the school’s program. Because all the teachers have agreed to employ formative assessment this year and because you are a strong proponent of classroom formative assessment, you enthusiastically accepted your principal’s invitation to talk with the parents about formative assessment. You decide to hand out a brief written description of “The Essence of Formative Assessment” when parents enter your room. The written explanation of formative assessment to be read by parents immediately will allow you to spend the bulk of the 20-minute period responding to the questions that parents raise. For this task, write that description. Provide a concise explanation of formative assessment in the way your school’s teachers are attempting to install that process. Do so in less than 400 words, and remember that these parents will usually be interested in how what you are talking about will have an impact on their children.
