Flexible Formative Assessments that Drive Deeper Learning

PowerMyLearning Connect offers several types of formative assessments, including customizable open-response and multiple choice assessments that can be added to your own playlists or pre-built multiple choice assessments combined with activities in a playlist.

Customizable Assessments
Checkpoints

Checkpoints

Add open-response or multiple choice questions at any point in the playlist sequence. Try one at the beginning to assess prior knowledge; try one at the end as an exit slip.

Playlist Tasks

Playlist Tasks

Add one overarching open-response question for students to answer while interacting with playlist activities. Require students to synthesize and apply information from multiple sources and attach supporting screenshots.

Use Checkpoints and Playlist Tasks to Help Students:
  • Demonstrate understanding and apply content knowledge
  • Engage in higher-order thinking
  • Develop metacognition by reflecting on their learning
  • Practice skills needed for success on PARCC & Smarter Balanced assessments
Pre-built Assessments
Missions

Missions

Missions are pre-built playlists containing digital learning activities, short multiple choice assessments, and metacognitive questions. They are designed to build or check mastery of middle school Common Core math standards. During a Mission, students are guided through a fun learning adventure featuring Wizmos, the motivational characters from Wizmo World.

Use Missions:
  • As introductory instruction
  • As a formative assessment to test mastery
  • As review before a summative assessment
  • To test student metacognition—the questions that measure a student’s ability to self-assess provide insight into confidence and accuracy on a given subject

Learn more about Missions here.

By combining learning activities and formative assessments in playlists, teachers can challenge students at all levels by asking them to demonstrate learning in different contexts.
