Parent conferences were held last week and I have been relaxing/recovering from the two exhausting days. Our parent conferences are held from 4:45-8 two nights in a row (Wed &Thurs). We only have 5 minutes to share student progress so I made a packet of students work consisting of homework quizzes, unit test and a student reflection.
I created the student assessment at the last minute to have my students reflect on how they work in groups and independently (homework).

Students completed the assessment first and then I filled the teacher column and commented on their improvement plan. This was a great way to give a snapshot of strengths and weaknesses of students during the conference. This also helped me target my concerns since I only have 5 minutes. I shared this with other math teachers in my school so I will be interested how they used the assessment during the conference.
I am always looking for new ways for students to self assess their effort and knowledge. If you use something similar I would love to hear about it!
I hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday!
