How can I formatively assess my students?

Formative assessment is integrated into the teaching and learning process. It can take many forms, such as in-class verbal or written questions or completing a self-assessment. While formative assessment can help teachers identify learning needs and concerns, it can also help students develop a greater understanding of their own strengths and weaknesses. This can help them take greater responsibility for their own learning.

Formative assessment strategies for the classroom

Useful formative assessment strategies include:

  • Asking questions to individuals or groups (verbal or written)
  • Incorporating self or peer assessments
  • Using exit slips at the end of a lesson, to gather feedback from students on what they’ve understood or need help with
  • Creating interactive videos to gather student data about topic understanding

Encourage students to critically reflect on content

Interactive videos help engage students in active learning, developing skills in higher order thinking and critical reflection. Using interactive videos in the classroom can help your students deepen their learning by:

  • Evaluating what they are viewing
  • Checking their topic or concept understanding
  • Reflecting on what they have learnt
