After students complete an assessment in my class, they chose either a green, yellow, or red sticker to put on the front of their paper. The green sticker indicates that they felt they did well on the assessment. The yellow sticker indicates that they felt ok. And, I refer to the red sticker as “SOS! I need help”.
- Green = GREAT!
- Yellow = OK
- Red = SOS, I need help.
When I grade the papers, I comment if a student chose a sticker that did not match their score. For instance, if a student put a yellow sticker on their paper, but did very well, I usually write, “Go Green!”. They love this.
