Assessments in Science

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.
