Different examples of formative assessment
I've created a presentation (with some help from my colleagues) on different examples of formative assessment.
You can view it here:
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.
