Linda Sheffield 5 What is formative assessment? Assessment to inform instruction Assessment becomes formative "when the evidence is actually used to adapt the teaching to meet student needs" (Black & Wiliam, 1998) In fact, research shows that formative assessment has one of the biggest effects on learning, even equal to the effect of parental influence. It is critical that assessment is diverse and divergent and develops through many pathways rather than from a single source. Gilbert Valdez

Linda Sheffield 7 Ten Principles of Assessment Foertsch (1999) 1 Clearly define what you will assess. What do you expect your students to be able to do? 2 Define the purpose of your assessment. Are you intending to conduct placement, formative, diagnostic, or summative assessment? 3 Select or develop assessment procedures that closely match targeted learning goals or abilities. 4 Know the limitations of assessment procedures used. Does the way the test is developed, administered, or interpreted present any limitations? 5 Use a variety of assessment procedures. Is your assessment comprehensive (e.g., do you make use of observations, class work, professional judgment, student and parent input?) 6 Evaluate the assessment or test you develop or use. Are they valid and reliable? 7 Communicate assessment results clearly to all users. Do the students, parents, teachers, and other stakeholders understand the results? 8 Consider and address personal implications. Are your biases influencing your professional judgment? 9 Strengthen the link between assessment and learning. Is assessment helping improve instruction and learning? 10 Assessment should serve a useful purpose and not be an end in itself. Are tests an integral part of your instruction and are they helping you guide instruction?

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
