Back to Formative Assessment

Teachers at Holy Spirit School in Sherwood Park share how the use of mini white boards provides opportunities for students to be deeply engaged in the assessment process.

Key Points

  • When using mini-whiteboards, students are engaged and able to take risks with their learning. They understand that this is an opportunity for learning, and not something to be marked.
  • The teacher can immediately spot misconceptions and provide timely feedback.

Discussion Question

  • Engagement means more than simply keeping students interested; true engagement implies a level of commitment to the learning. How might mini-whiteboards contribute to student engagement in an upcoming lesson?
