Formative Assessment with iPads
When teachers engage students in formative assessment, they give continual, explicit feedback to students and assist them in answering the following questions:
- Where am I now?
- Where am I going?
- How can I close the gap between the two?
In order to show students how to close the gap between where they are academically and where they want to be, teacher help students evaluate their progress in the learning process and give them explicit, descriptive feedback specific to the learning task.
