Formative Assessment

Resources to Support Formative Assessment

“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.” - Alvin Toffler

      • Formative assessments should be part of the learning experience in all classrooms, but they are particularly important in 1 to 1 classrooms. Quick formative assessments help teachers and students connect learning goals to classroom activities.
      • Many digital resources can help teachers and students create and engage in quick formative assessments at any time with little extra effort.
      • Good formative assessments help both the students and teachers gauge understanding and adjust teaching and learning on the fly. Formative assessments can also be fun.
      • Before creating your own assessments using any of these resources, we recommend exploring the tutorials embed in most of the resources. If you do want to jump right in, get started by searching for assessments that have already been created. (Most of these resources have a library of shared public assessments that you can copy and modify.)
