Elementary Formative Assessment LessonsThese lessons were created by Kentucky Teachers and field tested in Kentucky classrooms. The work started in 2010 through the Kentucky Math Teacher Leadership Network and continues with support from the Kentucky Department of Education. Lessons are constantly updated and added based on feedback from the field. Your feedback is valued and be given through email to renee.yates2@education.ky.gov
Each formative assessment lesson or classroom challenge is designed to be part of an instructional unit and should be implemented approximately twothirds of the way through the instructional unit. The results should then be used to inform the instruction that will take place for the remainder of your unit. Instructional practices embedded in the lessons should be utilized throughout instruction.
As with the formative assessment lessons or classroom challenges for grades 612, there are two types of elementary lessons:
