These 5-minute assessments (4 total–-2 daily and 2 weekly) will keep you ‘in the know’ about your students’ learning, hold them accountable, and let you know whether you need to reteach an area or move forward. Switch the assessments up for variety. It’s a fast, informative way to hear from your students (even the ones who sit quietly) and understand just what they’re getting from a lesson.
Make copies and have all four forms on hand so that you can choose the best assessment when needed. End the hour asking students to fill out the form, and let them know it is their ‘ticket’ to line up at the door.
