Limited Capacity seats available

Formative assessment is described as activities undertaken by teachers, and by their students in assessing themselves, which provide information to be used as feedback to modify the teaching and learning activities in which they are engaged. Such assessment becomes ‘formative assessment’ when the evidence is actually used to adapt the teaching work to meet the needs. This session for secondary mathematics teachers will engage participants in a formative assessment lesson. Participants will engage in a formative lesson about quadratic functions and will learn about valuable resources that will allow them to use formative assessment in their own classroom to engage their students. The design of this session is interactive.
