When playing video games, players are able to press the reset button when something goes wrong and realize they are missing an essential skill needed to win the game. In education, we can use formative assessment as a means for the student to press the virtual reset button. Educators can ensure that students gain the skills needed to be successful learners in their classroom.
In this book, the author provides strategies and techniques, such as the use of graphic organizers, quick writes, and journaling, to be used as formative assessments. Specific information about each tool and recommendations for data analysis and implementation are provided, helping teachers to implement formative assessment effectively and efficiently and allow their students to “preset the reset button” and master the skills they need to be successful in the classroom.
