ETS, 2005, from Butler (1988) British Journal of Educational Psychology, 58, 1-14
William (1998) found that focused efforts to improve formative assessments produced learning gains greater than one-half standard deviation, which would be equivalent to raising the score of an average student from the 50th percentile (average) to the 85th percentile.
In other words, formative assessment, effectively implemented, can do as much or more to improve student achievement than any of the most powerful instructional interventions, intensive reading instruction, one-on-one tutoring, and the like.
