Article Protocol • The Best Value in Formative Assessment
Formative and Summative • Formative and summative assessments are interconnected. They provide different levels of information on student leaning at different points on time. • Genuine formative assessment is not graded, but is supported through interactive and timely feedback, giving students the opportunity to respond. • Formative Assessment has the greatest impact on learning and achievement as supported by extensive research. • Adapted from Ministry of Education
Assessment FOR learning: How can we use assessment to help students learn more? (Formative) Assessment OF learning: How much have students learned at a particular point in time? (Summative) The Difference
Formative Assessment Includes: • Clarifying and sharing learning intentions (learning targets) and criteria for success prior to instruction. • Engineering effective classroom discussions, questions, and learning tasks. • Providing feedback the moves learners forward. • Activating students as the owners of their own learning. • Activating students as instructional resources for one another.
Formative Assessment • Formative assessment is a process used by teachers and students during instruction that provides feedback to adjust ongoing teaching and learning to improve students’ achievement of intended outcomes.
Planning the Formative Assessment Process • Before beginning a lesson, unit, or course: • What are the standards students need to know? • What curricular tools will be used (i.e. textbooks, online resources, manipulatives)? • What summative assessments will be used to judge student learning at the end? • What formative assessment strategies will be used to see where students are – during the lesson, unit, or course? • What formative strategies will be used to help students learn?
