Results of informal socratic questioning were used to scaffold student learning at the time in which the questions took place. Results will be used to develop more formal and informal assessments based on students’ individual needs. They serve as an immediate data source used to evaluate the effectiveness of prior teaching strategies and will also be used to develop future plans to differentiate instruction.
