Formative Assessment FA is a process used by teachers and students during instruction that provides feedback to adjust ongoing teaching and learning to help students improve their achievement of intended instructional outcomes. FA is found at the classroom level and happens minute to minute or in short cycles. FA is not grades or used in accountability systems.
