    INFORMative Assessment: Formative Assessment to Improve Math Achievement

    INFORMative Assessment: Formative Assessment to Improve Math Achievement

    What is formative assessment? Why do we do it and what do students gain? Formative assessment is not a one-time event. It is not the product or end result of a set of well-defined steps. Rather, formative assessment is a process identified in this resource as INFORMative assessment when it is a collection of strategies that engage teachers and students in becoming partners to support students' learning.

    This resource uniquely presents a collaborative learning journey in which educators understand the INFORMative perspective, explore must-have practices, and discuss how to implement them.
