Formative Assessment

Formative assessment is the ongoing, both formal and informal, assessment of students’ developing knowledge or skills. That is, the assessment of knowledge or skills as they are being formed. While formative assessment is necessary to determine what students’ learning needs are and to plan for future lessons or interventions, research also shows that formative assessment can be used to provide students with meaningful learning experiences.
