Hi all,

I've created a presentation (with some help from my colleagues) on different examples of formative assessment. You can view it here: https://docs.google.com/presentation/pub?id=1nzhdnyMQmio5lNT75ITB45rHyLI...

Note the definition I'm using at the beginning of the presentation: A formative assessment or assignment is a tool teachers use to give feedback to students and/or guide their instruction. It is not included in a student grade, nor should it be used to judge a teacher's performance. Both of these would be considered summative assessments.

Thank you for this fine document. With your kind permission, I have used this during Intern seminars to help my novice teachers understand the many different ways to assess student learning to determine any adjustments needed for instruction. I have passed this on to my fellow Clinical Instructors.
