Formative Assessment

What do you use for Formative Assessment? A survey was sent out listing fourteen (that’s rigtht 14!) options. Now, this was just one survey, there are several of these out there.

What happens in a survey like this? Users usually will vote for their favorite – obviously. But what counts as their favorite? How many of those voters are really, intimately aware of the strengths and weaknesses of all fourteen options?

For those that are aware of the fourteen options, what did those users give up by researching and trying out all fourteen options? Teacher time is limited. Given that teachers not only need to develop lesson plans, create relationships with students, grade work, spend time with friends and family and so much more, who has time to review fourteen different formative assessment tools?
