Fist to Five is a fast and easy way to check in with your learners. This strategy can be used before, during, or after lessons by askingstudents to display a rating of their understanding using just their hands. Students can display a fist signifying they did not understand the content at all, or they can use up to five fingers to rate their grasp of the content. Fist toFive is also a fantastic way for teachers to dial into students’ emotional well-being in the classroom by checking in once students have arrived for the day. Quick assessments like Fist to Five provide immediate information and allow teachers to monitor and adjust as their students need.
How can this assessment method help you differentiate for your students?
