Using Guided Groups for Formative Assessment

Address the individual needs of each learner of your class with this powerful formative assessment called Guided Groups. At the end of group instruction, students assess their understanding of the content by placing an A, B, or C on their paper. These letters correspond to their comfort level: A, I need the lesson again; B, I just have a few questions; C, I am ready to work independently. Through a guided group process, all students are provided with the differentiated support they need based on their self-assessment. This strategy encourages students to become active, self-reflective learners and allows the teacher to reflect on his or her own teaching each day, too.
