Have you been following my formative assessment series? If not, you can catch up by reading “Formative Assessment: An Introduction” and “Formative Assessment: Providing Feedback.”
Once you’ve read my other two posts and have a clear understanding of formative assessment, take a look at these six practical tips you can start using now.
1. Don’t emphasize grading over learning. Your goal should be to help students master the content, not to collect a grade.
2. Create a cooperative, not a competitive, atmosphere. Help your students understand that you are all working together as a team. If someone offers feedback, it is only in an effort to help, not hinder.
