Most things in 5th grade seem to work on a 4 point scale, so for my classroom it made sense to make our scale a range of 4 numbers. If you prefer a 3 or 5-number scale, go for it! After completing an activity or exit slip, students know to read our I-Can statement and then, consider how/if they’ve mastered the standards.
At the bottom of each activity or exit slip, students record a 1 – 4 number grid in the bottom corner of their paper and circle where they feel are in the learning process! It’s a quick process and gives me great insight about the confidence levels of my friends. Using the number grid also tells students they are responsible for their own learning and they know they’re being held accountable.
So, there you go! A number grid is a quick and easy way to get the pulse of learning in the classroom, and it keeps students thinking about their learning. So, tell me, how do you help students monitor their learning? I would love to hear your ideas!
