MICDS Math and Science faculty engaged in a STEM Retreat focused on learning more about and creating Formative Assessments with Page Keeley. The two-day STEM Retreat focused on an array of Formative Assessment Strategies in Mathematics, Science, Engineering and probes for integrated STEM topics. Informed by this discussion, MICDS faculty began writing their own assessment probes, collecting data and analyzing science/STEM education research regarding specific misconceptions to improve formative assessment in the classroom.
