Formative Assessments

I recently attended a high school TIP Session titled "Google Documents: Providing Efficient and Effective Feedback," presented by Sean DuBe'. In his presentation, Sean shared how Google Docs can be used to provide feedback and help students achieve standards, goals, and expectations. Students' (9th graders) average essay grades have moved from C+ (79.4%) to B average (83.5%) after a year of implementing feedback on Google Docs.

If you have used Google Forms, you know how useful it can be to quickly gather feedback from a survey or assessment. I was very excited to see the recent upgrade to Google Forms. You can now ... change the banner image, customize fonts, change the colors, and even modify the background. Richard Byrne (Free Technology for Teachers) created this helpful .
