Megan Howe's curator insight, April 7, 10:20 PM

"Formative assessment strategies in the classroom provide both teachers and students with invaluable information about what students understand, and what they don’t.  These ungraded assessments are valuable guides for students to help them enhance their performance, and they also help teachers determine if further instruction is necessary."


Formative assessments help teachers evaluate student understanding without adding stress or worry to students . Standardized testing creates a lot of pressure on students which can actually give a false test response.
