The Formative Assessment and the Common Core Standards: English Language Arts/Literacy course is designed to inform participants about assessment practices to maximize student success within the context of Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
After establishing a useful definition of formative assessment, we’ll explore how it can be most effectively used, and how to take the necessary steps to create formative assessments to inform both the teacher and the student. Common Core standards have been designed to reflect increased rigor and focus, signaling the importance of educational practices, such as formative assessment, that can promote students’ progress towards higher levels of achievement.
