This practical guide shows teachers how to create and implement formative assessments in their middle and high school science classrooms in all science content areas, including physics/physical science, life science/biology, earth and space science, and chemistry. The first section of the book describes the three steps in the feedback loop of formative assessment: setting learning goals, determining what students know, and giving informational, non-evaluative feedback to students. The second section of the book presents in-depth descriptions of five types of formative assessments: big idea questions, concept maps, evidence-to-explanation, predict-observe-explain, and multiple choice. Each chapter includes several examples, drawn from a range of grade levels and content areas. Templates help teachers analyze lessons in current units and identify places for inserting formative assessments. Planning sheets and classroom reproducibles are included. Furtak has worked as a teacher, administrator, and curriculum designer. She now teaches science education at the University of Colorado-Boulder.
