Lesson Assessment Tool : Student-Teacher Conferences

[Conference Card]

I personally think very highly of student-teacher conferences—short to the point, informal conversations one-on-one with each student throughout the week concerning an assignment or lesson that is in progress. These allow the teacher to check their understanding if an activity is more of a student-led activity. It also allows the teacher to assess comprehension and growth of the student through their development. These student-teacher conferences also allow the student to have a more private opportunity to ask for help. Below is an example of a student’s single conference card and the filing system where all of the student’s conference cards are kept on record.
