Great Formative Assessment Idea

Here is a great idea that can be used either as an exit or entrance ticket to assess what students have learned about a topic…quick, easy, fun, and formative!

What Is The Question:



Simply write an answer on the board, students then write questions to match the answer on post it notes. They can read through their notes or handouts to help them. They can stick their questions around the board.

Alternatively, they can write the answer in their books & list questions under or around it.

You can use this activity to:
– review a person, place or thing
– look at a character or setting of a book the class has read
– practice number sense (write a number as the answer & students need to write equations to equal that number.)

I love how versatile & easy to set up this activity is! Hope you find it useful too!
