Formative Assessment


In search of formative assessment ideas?  The document below contains a listing of types of formative assessments that can be used to form an accurate picture of student progress or achievement.  Certainly, depending on how it’s being used, an assessment could fit either the formative or summative category. While this list is not all-inclusive, is does serve as a good guide for the types of activities that can and should be used to assess students during learning.

Both formative and summative assessments can take on many different forms. In order to get an accurate measure of a student’s progress or achievement, it is important to use multiple forms of assessment, not the same type over and over again.  You will find some of these templates on this page.  SCROLL DOWN THE PAGE.
