Getting Students to complete formatives

multi-disciplinary

#1

My plan for this was to assign as an extension to a lesson or a homework assignment, but if not done as part of a grade it is not taken seriously or in some cases done, any thoughts. I want to use this as the name says a formative assessment to help shape what i do.

Maybe try making this a part of a class game/competition. They can earn “experience points” for completing it - maybe more points if a certain number are correct?
My 6th graders are still highly motivated by stickers - so this is an easy reward with basically no prep that can keep them completing the daily work.

You could also do “rewards” or “privelidges” for when students complete a certain amount of formatives. (On Fridays if they have turned in completed formatives each time they can bring in headphones and listen to music during work time, they earn a mint or can chew gum…maybe if the whole class completes all the formatives they can choose their work space on Friday (if your class normally has assigned seats))
