    Teacher Questions

    Asking students questions, especially higher order questions that require a bit of wait time can be an excellent form of formative evaluation
    Asking students higher order questions can be a way to stretch their thinking or push them to think in new ways
    Student Questions

    Asking students to use what they know to write their own questions can also be an excellent form of formative evaluation
    Asking students to consider what they are confused by, what they wonder, what they think they are missing, etc. can be an even better form of formative evaluation
    promotes curiosity/inquiry (increased relevance, increased motivation)
    improves comprehension and retention

    shows a desire to know more
    promotes inquiry
    requires knowledge & ability to see what you’re missing (known unknowns)
