Formative assessment involves a combination of activities aimed at targeting teacher and student actions increasingly precisely upon the next steps in learning for individuals. It involves dialogue that provides information about students' understandings that helps teachers and students interpre More…t the effectiveness of the activity and tailor subsequent activities using that knowledge. Activities that contribute to formative assessment include different approaches to detailed feedback, teacher questioning and peer and self assessment in the light of learning goals and explicit criteria.
