  Description A diagnostic learning environment is one in which assessments are used for formative purposes. Formative assessment identifies the details of students' understanding and reasoning. This allows the teacher to address specific student ideas with targeted instruction. What does formative assessment look like and why do we think it is important? How do teacher-educators help pre-college teachers construct an understanding of what formative assessment is and how to implement it? In this workshop we will analyze video and written classroom data, diagnose student understanding of specific ideas using evidence from classrooms, and consider instructional implications. We will consider evidence of ways in which pre-college teachers understand and implement formative assessment in their classrooms. In addition, participants will learn about the Diagnoser Project's free instructional tools to help diagnose precollege student thinking and guide instructional decisions.
