Fist of Five

What is Fist to Five?

  • We will use the Fist to Five method to check for understanding as well as grading.  Students will assess themselves for their grade.  If they feel they have a complete understanding of the assignment and it was easy, they would give themselves a 5.  If they feel like they have a complete understanding of the assignment but maybe made a few minor erros, they would give themselves a 4.  If they almost completely understood the assignment and made a few errors, they would give themselves a 3.  If they had a little trouble with the assignment and made errors, they would give themselves a 2.  If they struggled with the assignment and made several errors, they would give themselves a 1.  If they totally struggled and made numerous errors on the assignment, they would give themselves a 0.

     

    Grading: 5 = 100%     4 = 100%     3 = 90%     2 = 80%     1 = 70%     0 = 60%
