Assessments in Science

Hello, I am a preservice teacher and I have been learning a lot about formative assessments in literacy. I was wondering about any possible ways, suggestions, or strategies you can use for conducting on-going assessments in science?

Hello. I am currently student teaching in a 4th grade math and science class. We do not often get to teach math but, when we do my mentor teacher and I use visual representations as a form of formative assessment. Upon completion of a lesson, we will have the students create t-charts, mind maps, illustrations, or research. We these as a quick way of assessing our students understanding of the specific concept being presented and for adjustment of instruction to address student needs.

On-going assessment I do in my classroom is I walk around the room and watch the students as they work or when they talk to their partners. An assessment can also be conducted by asking students questions about what they have learned. If a student is able to explain clearly what they were being taught then the teacher will if he or she needs additional help or not.
