Our school has recently been studying Seven Strategies of Assessment for Learning by Jan Chappuis. One of our first steps was to have the students keep track of their own learning. We created "data notebooks" for each student to keep track of their learning. Students set goals for themselves and tracked their progress. Right now, our notebooks are very simple. I'm sure someone out there could fancy them up and make them much cuter. (If you do, please send me a copy!) I'm looking forward to trying to utilize them more this year. Take a look at what we have made so far and let me know if you have any ideas for how we could improve upon them.
