Abstract:

New Frontiers in Formative Assessment is for educators who want to tap into the power of formative assessment. It showcases ongoing work that pushes the field of formative assessment forward in key ways. Drawn from a variety of classrooms in terms of age level, subject area, and use of technology, the chapters in this book highlight the importance of context in developing effective formative assessment practices. At the same time, the volume addresses the common elements of a successful formative assessment project notably, high interest, manageability, impact, and validity as well as some common barriers to implementation. Taken together, these projects illustrate the journey from assessment of learning to assessment for learning and ultimately toward assessment as learning.
