  • Documents





Observation Rubric

This document outlines the key elements of effective FAL implementation. It can be used for teachers to observe one another and provide descriptive feedback or for teachers to self-assess their implementation.


Teacher Guidebooks

This document contains a quick reference sheet for implementing a Formative Assessment Lesson.


This document was compiled by Research for Action. It contains helpful information for teachers as they implement lessons.



Implementation Timeline



Forms for Collecting Student Work

As lessons are implemented, please submit student work for one of your classes using the following forms. Contact Jenny Barrett when your items are compiled.


Professional Learning Formats:

Documents for Job Embedded Sessions

Agenda for Working Through a New Lesson PLC

Agenda for Analysis of Pre-Lesson Assessment/Planning to Implement


Agenda for Analysis of Post-Lesson Assessment/Adjusting Instruction

Materials for Sessions




Common Core Standards and the Standards for Mathematical Practice

The full Common Core Document can be accessed at:
http://www.corestandards.org/assets/CCSSI_Math%20Standards.pdf

One of the most significant changes in the Common Core Standards is the inclusion of the Standards of Mathematical Practice. This document is a summary of the Standards of Mathematical Practices.


Formative Assessment Strategies

The FALs are designed to incorporate the formative assessessment strategies into instruction. These strategies should be incorporated into daily instruction, not just when FALs are being implemented.
