Art teachers use multiple forms of formative assessment on a daily basis. Formative assessment is immediate and allows teachers to change content and make accommodations based on student learning. Teachers assess learning by monitoring student progress on a project and through conversations. Some easy strategies teachers use to assess learning include thumbs up- thumbs down or fist to five, but these ideas just scratch the surface. If formative assessment is an area you want to explore deeper, keep in mind we spend an entire discussion board talking about it in the AOE class Assessment in Art Education.
“Exit slips are one of the easiest ways to obtain information about students’ current levels of understanding.” – Robert Marzano
Exit slips are quick, easy, and provide immediate feedback.
By reviewing the responses on the exit slips, teachers can quickly assess students understanding of a concept, the struggles they’re having, what they like or create differentiated learning groups based on the student responses.
