Informal Assessment Strategy – Z Charts

Learning, Contributing ‘n Developing – tutorial for creating your own Z Charts

Z Charts are an informal assessment tools borrowed from the business world where they are often used to show sales over time, and the site, “Learning, Contributing ‘n Developing” provides a tutorial on creating your own Z Charts for sales applications. I’m going to introduce monthly Z Charts to give students a graphical representation of their progress in the Math course to help keep them motivated. Of course, they’ll have to learn how to read a graph to figure out what their Z Graph is telling them, which happens to be one of the topics in the course.
