Thought starters

  1. How do math teachers at this school use common formative assessments?
  2. What does the school principal cite as the benefits of common formative assessments?
  3. What process to teachers use to customize textbook assessments for their students?
Nowhere did I see an explanation of what "CFA"s stands for. I watched the video which I enjoyed and learned from. I am assuming from your conversations that the "C" stands for "common" and I think the "A" stands for "assessment" but I haven't figured out what the "F" stands for. Is there any way you could have your title changed so it does not include an abbreviation?
