Course Description
The purpose of this professional development is to provide teachers with a variety of technology
tools that can be utilized to provide formative assessment for their students and to improve their
confidence in using these tools. It will teach skills in using technology tools as a means for
formative assessment that can be applied to other formative assessment technology tools as they
become available. Emphasis will be placed on development of formative assessments that will
be ready to use in the individual teachers classroom in an upcoming lesson or unit. Each teacher
will create a formative assessment for one or more of their classes with each technology tool
presented. This will provide teachers with a minimum of five formative assessments tools that
utilize technology.
