There are five core strategies that should be part of any successful formative assessment practice in the classroom.
1)Clarifying, sharing, and understanding learning intentions and criteria for success– getting the students to really understand what their classroom experience will be and how their success will be measured.
2) Engineering effective classroom discussions, activities, and learning tasks that elicit evidence of learning– developing effective classroom instructional strategies that allow for the measurement of success.
3)Providing feedback that moves learning forward– working with students to provide them the information they need to better understand problems and solutions.
4)Activating learners as instructional resources for one another– getting students involved with each other in discussions and working groups can help improve student learning.
5) Activating learners as owners of their learning– self-regulation of learning leads to student performance improvement.
