Ninth grade science students are not only learning fundamentals of science and chemistry, they are getting a lesson in thinking about learning. Students complete ungraded quizzes about science content. Then students complete reflections commenting on their preparation relative to their quiz score. How do they know their score? Flubaroo allows their teacher to send each student a personal grade report via email instantly. Students can immediately address their misunderstandings and misconceptions about the content by asking good questions. They can also reflect on how their study habits influenced the outcome of the quiz. Their teacher learns which topics are causing students trouble as well. Students are engaged in these formative assessments and gain insight about their own learning process. Simple solutions can provide great rewards.
