Measuring Student Learning: Assessment Strategies for Middle & High School

April 21, 2017

How do you know if students have "got it?" This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about measuring student learning in the ELA classroom. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed different types of informal and formal assessments. Teachers also shared how their assessments are designed and creative methods of measuring learning. Read through the chat for ideas to implement in your own classroom.

Read through the chat below to find out how other teachers use data from assessments to inform future instruction. You'll get ideas about simple informal assessments like exit tickets, four corners, and thumbs up/thumbs down.  You'll also find ways to use technology like Kahoot! and Google Forms to make collecting data easier.

Hope you'll join us on Tuesday April 25th to discuss using article of the week in the ELA classroom. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
