Formative Assessment Probes
I was recently reading the September/October 2020 issue of “Science & Children” a publication of the National Science Teaching Association. In this issue, I read the “Formative Assessment Probes“ column written by Page Keeley. Her article was entitled “Using Formative Assessment Probes with Real or Virtual Field Trips.”
Using a formative assessment probe prior to a real-time or virtual field trip activates students’ thinking about the concepts and phenomena they will be learning about during their experience.
