Formative Assessment Jump-Starts a Middle Grades Differentiation Initiative
Doubet, Kristina J.
Middle School Journal (J3), v43 n3 p32-38 Jan 2012
A rural middle level school had stalled in its third year of a district-wide differentiation initiative. This article describes the way teachers and the leadership team engaged in collaborative practices to put a spotlight on formative assessment. Teachers learned to systematically gather formative assessment data from their students and to use that data to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of their diverse student body. (Contains 7 figures.)
