    My big takeaway from this lesson is that many do not utilize the formative assessment to evaluate the path the teaching will take. The formative assessment can tell us what the students continue to need understanding on and who needs further instruction. We need to provide students with information on what areas in which they are growing and we need to utilize the formative assessment to learn about our student’s thinking and how we can improve student learning.

    One thing I am still wondering is how I better utilize formative assessment to inform my instruction and benefit my students while still remaining on track with the course map expectations set forth by my district.
