How Can The Formative Assessment/ Instructional Process Improve Learning?

“Research indicates that improving learning through assessment depends on five, deceptively simple, key factors:

  • The provision of effective feedback to pupils;
  • The active involvement of pupils in their own learning;
  • Adjusting teaching to take account of the results of assessment;
  • A recognition of the profound influence assessment has on the motivation and self-esteem of pupils, both of which are crucial influences on learning;
  • The need for pupils to be able to assess themselves and understand how to improve.”
