Day111: Time to Check-In with My Students

My students did the check-in today.  These are a mini-formative assessment on a half-sheet of paper.  Usually the problems are from in-class work and/or homework problems and are used as a gauge of my students’ skill acquisition.  I give 10 minutes for the students to complete.  They are quick and relatively easy to grade so turn around time is short.  Great little device for immediate feedback.

My students are serious about these check-ins, but they barely impact their grades.  They are worth between 5-8 points in the 20% category, so I see them as a win-win activity: they get immediate feedback without waiting until a quiz or a test and I get timely information about how the kiddos are doing in a semi-assessment situation.
