Strongly Agree Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Agree Agree

1a. This session was beneficial. 1b. Why or why not? Was interesting talking to other teachers about how/when they assess and what action they take with this information. Just reinforces my understanding of formative and summative assessments. It gave clarity and insight as to what I was doing right and new ideas that others are using as well. It helped me to further understand how to use Formative to further enhance my students learning. I think talking about an example of an assessment between each other definitely helped us understand how we can assess our kids better. It takes all of us talking together to really understand and learn how to help these kids along the way. We feed off each other when we give examples. Collaborating on assessment tools gives new ideas I appreciated the Jill's words and the video which illuminated the differences between formative and summative assessment which was followed by actual examples of individual assessments and what made them formative and summative. We are gaining clarity on formative and summative assessment Helpful to think of assessing in different ways, not necessarily with a test or paper. It was great to get new ideas for assessment and see how others use formative assessment. reinforced formative and summative assessment It is very applicable to what I do all the time.

Agree Strongly Agree Disagree I think we understand the difference in formative and summative assessment, and it feels like we keep discussing the same topics rather than moving to the next step. Strongly Partnering with people on other grade levels helped me overcome a question I was Agree struggling with. I can do it another way! I just needed to brainstorm with someone with a different view. Agree Agree I enjoyed sharing ideas and assessments with others. Agree great to talk to other specials teachers how they handle assessment Strongly I love that I am walking away with one great idea to change the way I assess reading. Agree Agree Was helpful to talk to my colleagues and hear their ideas.

Agree Agree Strongly Agree Agree

Strongly Agree Strongly It is always helpful to see how others use assessment in their classrooms. I liked Disagree hearing what questions other specials teachers are asking their students to asses them. Agree It was very helpful to work through an example of assessment that I use and ask myself the questions that were given. The hardest question was "What action does the student take based on this assessment." This was hard because I'm not completely used to putting it in the child's hands. Strongly Agree Agree I did get some good ideas about assessment, especially a reflection that will help with summative assessment. Disagree I would have loved to had more of a working session with others to add, amend, and create new assessment ideas. It was nice to talk about ONE assessment from another grade level, but I think a greater jigsaw, among grade levels that are similar (K, 1,2 and 3,4 or 4,5,6) might be more beneficial to those seeking new or different assessment. Strongly This session was valuable because I learned about another specials teacher's Agree assessment, which I will adapt and use pieces of. I liked how she included a question about how the student feels he or she did this trimester and instructs them to write an "I Can" statement. I also liked the question she included about students writing a goal for the next trimester. Strongly Every time I go to one of Jill's meetings I feel that I have new language to use with my Agree students. I, again, feel like I have language to help my students give and receive feedback. Strongly I really appreciated the time to talk with colleagues about their formative and summative Agree assessments. Agree It was beneficial to hear ideas of my colleagues in other grade levels and in my own. Agree Understand kinds of assessment Strongly I really enjoyed talking to Chari about her student. Thinking about math talk is so Agree important. She thought that the student had just memorized the math facts...good and bad. How do you know if a child truly understands math concepts? I hope that my suggestion will work for her. Strongly Agree Strongly Working with my team was beneficial because for the first time we were able to share Agree what is already in practice in a few of the K classrooms. Strongly I want to be able to assess where I can give meaningful feedback right away so action Agree can be taken, and not just send them to a resource for the answers. Neutral Not much new to think about - so far I haven't received applicable feedback from team mates that will help me move forward. Strongly It was helpful to share ideas with other teachers across grade levels and within my Agree grade level. Agree I really enjoyed seeing how another department assesses. It was beneficial to receive feedback from another department's viewpoint.

I loved hearing about how others assess and getting feedback on my current ways of assessing. I even was able to brainstorm new ideas with my team based on what other teachers and grades are doing. It was helpful to discuss the types of assessments and other things going on in the different grades. I hadn't thought about changing some of my more summative assessments (when I designed them) could be turned into formative. They are so much more valuable that way. It was really interesting and educational to see/hear about specific examples of how other Trinity teachers (not on my team) formatively assess their students. I definitely picked up some new ideas! I also enjoyed the opportunity to purposefully reflect on an assessment piece and pick it apart the way we were asked to. It was great to help each other improve our individual assessments.

Strongly Agree Agree

It was helpful as it provided deeper understanding on assessment (summative and formative). It was nice to share with other teams what we do, and learn about their formative assessments./ We also had a chance to discuss how to transfer the assessments to my learning.

2a. The content of this session can be applied to my work. 2b. Why or why not? I am always looking for new ways to assess and help my students grow It gave me other ideas of ways to assess.

I can make sure I'm encouraging each child along the way. We will not assume the action taken, instead we will help them figure out how they are thinking. We are learning while they are learning. With my example i can take videos of the child and show them how they are working at each task and goal that they want to reach. Once I show them they can plan the next step for them to succeed. Assessments can be done with very young students, just in a variety of ways that are tied more to observations I will make sure that I am constantly making informative assessments so that I can help these children understand the concepts they are learning. Also I will make sure I am giving descriptive suggestions for improvement. I use assessment to learn where each child is in their learning for progress reports I think it's important to think of all the ways we can assess children, both formative and summative. It helps to be more intentional about assessment being formative. Assessment is always important and a part of my work, but I'd like to move forward deepening our understanding of assessment, not just what it is.

I assess students daily and need new & better ideas to help me do a better job of assessing my students. see above

I am assessing students all day long. Making a plan for what's next is challenging! It's good to have dedicated time to think about it and discuss it. See above. We now have more suggestions as to what to do next. I am a growing teacher.

I received excellent feedback on how to use our assessment information and help each individual student grow. I do think it is good for specials to bounce ideas off of each other, but I also feel like I would learn new ways to assess from base classroom teachers. It would be nice to change it up and meet with them as well. I received lots of good feedback on my assessment and also learned of other assessments that are done in the school. I was then able to brainstorm ways in which I can alter those ideas to make it work for my students. I will be using the reflection with my next summative assessment. I am currently in the process of creating assessments for my students to use as reflection in My Learning. This is my first time, so I appreciate the feedback on what I have done so far. I can immediately use the language and ideas in my classroom. Seeing how others use formative and summative assessments is extremely helpful.

It is helpful with my planning. Because I work interdisciplinary with students and teachers, it's always beneficial for me to learn about what's happening in the classroom. I got a lot out of sharing techniques for assessment and planning next steps. My colleagues inspire me! My next steps will be to find ways to provide feedback to students that they can then take and use to track their progress, specifically when conferencing during writing. We assess on a daily basis, so understanding how to get the required information from the assessment and what to use to inform our students is essential to help our kids. see above We are constantly thinking about how to use assessment to make our teaching more effective. Sports analogies work wonders for me! I still would like more information about how to feed up and give the action back to the students. It was great to hear about what our colleagues are doing for assessment, and see examples of their different types of assessment. It was also nice to be able to meet with colleagues from other departments and hear about how they implement assessments in their classrooms. Being more aware of your assessments benefit the child in the learning process. Learning about what other teams have done and what they are currently doing has sparked some new ideas.

3b. Please tell us anything else you want us to know. I think it's important to continue conversations as we learn so much from sharing! I would like the other teachers to understand what we talked about in this class. I think it was beneficial to us all! More on the art of questioning Thank you for offering these sessions and having these conversations. They are making us all better learners. Great, productive meeting! We should do this more often. I like assessments that teach. Having these conversations will move Kindergarten into a more common way of assessing. How do we use the assessment to provide feed up, feed back, and feed forward? Sometimes this is hard especially when assessing multiple items on one document. I'd like specific feedback about what I/we are doing. Great structure to the meeting today! Optional: I have learned... Better understanding of formative and summative assessment About PE and 2nd grade assessment That there are many interesting ways of assessing that are being used in our community. I have a lot to learn about assessment and being a better teacher. The difference between Formative and Summative Assessments. the difference between formative and summative assessment I learned that assessments can be both formative and summative. Optional: My question is... What are various ways to assess both formatively and summatively? What's the best way to share videos with our kids so they can self assess?? - youtube channel ?? - students on zoe (does that exist) ?? Authentic assessments Think Tac toes and rubrics for these. How do we include the students in the action that needs to happen after a formative assessment? I'd love to hear ways in which other teachers have done this successfully. Can we have large chunks of time to develop better summative and formative assessments? More on complimenting children. I feel so self-conscious now when I say, "good job!" I keep having internal conversations about how to assess conversational contributions.... Feeding up, feeding back, and feeding forward - how do I know that I am doing these?
