Reflect: Consider the best means of developing and delivering assessments, projects, and assignments that meet standards-based learning goals and assess learning progress by measuring student achievement of learning goals.

Answer: How might a teacher employ ways to formatively assess student readiness for course content and method of delivery?

In order for formative assessment to be effective, it must first and foremost be authentic. There are various methods of authentic assessment that have proven to be effective in the classroom such as: ongoing project-based learning, technology-driven artifacts (ex: using Pinterest, Thinglink, Google Drive, etc.), and choice-based assessments (ex: using Blooms to create differentiated options).

Artifact: To demonstrate this, create a formative assessment related to a learning standard. Post a link to the assessment or activity in your blog. Explain.
