Assessment is frequently thought of as a measure of what students have learned. However, what if you could assess your students to measure what they COULD learn? In this webinar, join Leigh Anne Kraemer-Naser as she introduces a variety of formative assessment methods that can be used in early childhood classrooms, including PreK and Kindergarten. After comparing and contrasting formative and summative assessment outcomes, Leigh Anne will provide an overview of strategies for formative assessment, such as observation, running records, pre-assessment, and reflection. In addition, she will share a list of skills that can be assessed using each of these techniques. While the strategies and examples given focus primarily on PreK and Kindergarten, many would be applicable to other early grade levels as well.

I appreciate the extra help. I teach language arts and I want to use the idea of assessment through flash cards I use ebooks but never thought about how helpful they are for assessment
