There's No Time Like Real-Time: Immediate Formative Assessments for Secondary Classrooms

Tony Varrato


Traditional formative assessments such as homework and graphic organizers are useful for determining student understanding but are time consuming and interrupt instructional flow. Varrato identifies quick and easy ways to assess comprehension without compromising student engagement and class momentum through use of interactive whiteboards and free, web-based tools such as Survey Monkey and Padlet.
