Force & Motion Consensogram Vocabulary Check for the SmartBoard
This FREE notebook file contains vocabulary words from a 5th grade science unit on force and motion including simple machines. It can be used like entry & exit slips to gauge student perceptions of their understanding. I use one word each day during the unit. This notebook file uses a consensogram. This is a quality tool that shows the frequency of distribution of responses, measures a group's perceptions and allows individuals to view their responses in relation to the entire group by having students place virtual stickers where they feel they are.
1. Can be used to identify the group’s perception of effort, commitment or understanding.
2. Can be used with a large group of people when time is limited.
