STAAR Review to Go Tracking Tables
Students may use a tracking table to record which activities they've completed as well as indicate their confidence level with the concepts in each. The tables also serve as a way for teachers to see student accomplishment.
*If your district or campus has created folder activities, the blank template is customizable for your needs.
*Print either file two-sided, flip on short side. You'll get 2-4 cards per sheet depending on the file.*
Use these cards as formative assessment tools. Students can indicate their answers sliding a paper clip or by pinching the card using an index finger and thumb. You'll be able to see answer choices no matter where you are in the room because the cards are the same on the front and back. The faces at the bottom of the card on the left can indicate how confident students are with the answers they've chosen.
