  1. Love the new blog banner! I usually read from my RSS reader, so the banner might not really be new, but I read straight from blog this morning, and I love the banner.


  2. Hi Jill 🙂

    My name is Shannon Martin and I attended your session a couple of weeks ago in Las Vegas titled Leading Learners to Level Up: Formative Assessment that Builds Confidence and Skill. I was absolutely mesmerized by your presentation and accomplishments. I am currently on maternity leave and I am already brainstorming how to design formative assessments for next year using your tiered levels. Thank you so much for your dedication to learning. Ever since I started my teaching career my goal has been to help students track their own skill progress and the structure of your assessments is ideal. I was seriously in awe all day after your session. A smile did not leave my face when I shared with my family about my conference experience 🙂

    I did have a question in regards to the sample formative assessment you shared during the session “Negative Exponents”. After the students grade the test and fill out the table of specifications to record their level, what was the paragraph that was written below the “I can… ” table? Was that a paragraph the students wrote or did the teacher write that paragraph? If you are okay e-mailing the sample you used during the conference, then I would love to see it.

    Thank you so much for your time. You are awesome and if you have suggestions to help me develop your style of formative assessments 🙂 please share 🙂

    I am truly excited to reach out and help my 8th Grade students improve the way they assess and communicate mathematical ideas.
