Discussion and Supporting Materials

Thought starters

  1. What kinds of obstacles might students write on the red light?
  2. How could the data gathered from the exit slips be used to inform future lessons?
  3. How could you adapt the three categories of feedback for your classroom?

Hi, I am unable to watch the video This Video Cannot Be Played Because of Technical Error Error Code 102006.

I do like this idea and it gives immediate feedback to the teacher. I believe the students' engage in deeper learning when they are required to respond and give feedback about what they learned, what questions, and what stopped them. The teacher can use all of the feedback to direct her future learning for the students. Adapting this style with my business classes could be useful.

It seems like a great tool to use. It not only helps the student assess themselves but it always helps the teacher know how to construct or group the students for future lessons.

Nice idea. A similar system is used as an exit ticket for our 7th grade students. We ask the students an assessment of what they learned regardless of the core topic being discussed. This strategy can lead to improvement of student learning as well as classroom instruction. In addition, we as teachers can help them to improve our lesson plans throughout the week.

The Stoplight method as demonstrated in the video could be easily implemented within my 3rd grade classroom. Implementation of this method would require minimal materials, provide immediate assessment of what went well/ not so well, and how to prepare for next day instruction.

    Interviewer: [Music sounds]. One way that I like to collect formative assessments is using my end-of-class stoplight method. [Ringing and music sounds].

    Before you leave, I'm gonna quickly give you a sticky note. [Music sounds]. I want you to either write one of these three things.

    Students use a Post-it note to, first of all, write either what they learned and post it on the green light. [Bell sound]. What questions they considered. Post it on the yellow light.

    Did you consider an idea, a question, or you're going to tell me what you considered.

    Often times, the most important, if anything stopped their learning during class and put that on the red light. [Bell sound]. Really helps me understand not only what went well during class, but also
    what I need to do to prepare for the next day. [Music sounds]
