      • Formative assessment – assessment for learning
      “Formative assessment is not a test. Rather, it is an ongoing process in which teachers use test-elicited evidence to adjust their instruction or students use it to adjust their learning tactics .” Jim Popham
    • 8. Formative Assessment
      • Research on formative assessment has shown that when teachers practice good formative assessment and students participate in it, BOTH achievement and motivation increase.
      • This achievement increase can be as much as .4 to .7 standard deviations. That’s like moving from the 50 th percentile to the 65 th or 75 th percentile.
      • These effect sizes are larger than most of those found for educational interventions.
