What can we do to find out what youth know about a particular topic without resorting to a quiz or test? What strategies can we use before, during and following an activity to surface youths’ understanding? In this two-part module, we’ll first clarify the purpose of formative assessment and then learn several easy to implement strategies for monitoring youths’ understanding. We’ll revisit the water filter activity from the Asking Purposeful Questions module to see the strategies in action. At your own site, you’ll record a portion of an activity of your choosing to practice one of the strategies and share it during part two, the coaching session.
