Formative Assessment from Hand Signals to Harkness Discussions

As a follow-up to the previous post connecting formative assessment methods with Bloom's taxonomy, the chart below moves from very simple quick-checks such as hand signals to more complex and thorough methods like harkness discussions, again connecting them to Bloom's.

Below I've included only a portion of the chart. The full document is available on Google docs using the link.
