Proof is in any random google search.
There is also a WONDERFUL stoplight writing format that I used last year from Mrs. Prince.
Thanks to Marzano and our district's teacher evaluation model, I came up with a stoplight inspired system to check for student understanding. As teachers, we know what each of our students need to work on. However, we need to make sure the students are responsible for their understanding, too.
My principal was observed (to be certified) on her understanding of the evaluation model while she was in my class (by a "person" from the "official" company). After my lesson, we had to do a mock follow up conference to discuss my mock evaluation. An area I needed to work on was "how I know that the students know that they know." Yeah, it took me a while to wrap my brain around that comment from the "person".
I whipped out my trusty stoplight chart I formally used to monitor classroom noise level.

And I made it into a packet you can use.

100% and a red dot? That student needs some reassurance!
0% and a green dot? Yeah, that student needs a chat...
We also do it on our reading centers to-do lists so I can have a quick look at the students week on Friday.

So, thank you Mr. Marzano. (I guess...) =)
