Formative assessment is the “processes by which teachers and learners use information about the students’ achievement to make adjustments to students’ learning that improve their achievement” – Dylan Wiliam

With digital we can access more information about our learners than ever and we can use that to support their learning. These digital tools include:

  • Assignments to set learning tasks with scaffolded activities, hand in learning and return with feedback
  • Forms to create Quizzes that include scaffolded learning, automated assessment and feedback, and clear, visual data for tracking and reporting
  • Notebooks that allow educators to view learnign in real-time, provide feedback (including voice recording), and for learners to capture their learning evidence in a wide range of formats including video, photo, text and verbally
