First Grade- Assessment for Learning


Our learning is often provisional and frequently changes with time. Students have an ever-increasing ability, with intentional time, space, and support to set goals, assess learning, track progress, and present their growth - creating an environment where they are co-designers of their learning.

Support students to identify their strengths and challenges by building structures to support them in reflecting on their learning. Include opportunities for students to respond to peer and teacher feedback within instructional arcs. 

By reflecting on their own learning and that of their peers, students are better equipped to ask for what they need and to use this information to make decisions about their goals, their learning, and their future.

Reflection Questions

  1. How can prioritizing assessment for learning develop academic ownership and honor students' experiences?
  2. Where does assessment for learning currently show up in your practice? What is working well for students? How do you know? 
  3. What are the implications for your own practice? What will you do first?
