Overview

Frequent, low-stakes ‘assessment’ has been shown to be a highly effective driver of students’ learning. The course will bring you to use formative assessment more often, and more effectively by improving teaching and students’ outcomes.

You will be introduced to a wide range of formative assessment strategies to experiment within your own classroom. This teacher training course will bring you to understand that when this process is incorporated into classroom practise, it provides information needed to adjust teaching and learning while they are still happening.

The formative assessment process will enable you to check your student’s understanding during their learning process that will guide you in making decisions about future learning instructions. After the course, you will be able to use the formative assessment process to gather evidence of your students learning.

Completing this course will help you:

  • Use a wide range of formative assessment strategies
  • Realtime analysis of information needed to adapt teaching and learning style while they are still happening.
