Formative Assessment and Feedback

Please consider the following questions...

Are all assessments formative?

Can students learn without grades?

Can students learn without feedback?

Is it important to give students standard based formative feedback?

It's not teaching that causes learning...

“You can’t learn without feedback . . . . It’s not teaching that causes learning. It’s the attempts by the learner to perform that cause learning, dependent upon the quality of the feedback and opportunities to use it. A single test of anything is, therefore, an incomplete assessment. We need to know whether the student can use the feedback from the results.” -- Grant Wiggins
