The Interface of Interim Assessment and Feedback: An Opinion Paper
Nodoushan, Mohammad Ali Salmani
Online Submission, Journal on Educational Psychology v4 n3 p1-8 Nov 2010-Jan 2011
Many schools and educators prefer to use state tests. However, teachers can benefit a lot from the tests and quizzes they give in their classes over the course of a term or year. The minimum such tests can do is to afford information that teachers can use to assess how their class is learning and which changes in instruction need to be made to assure maximum outcome. This is a diagnostic quality that teacher-made tests possess, a quality that can technically be termed formative assessment which can be contrasted with summative assessment or making judgments about class achievement. This paper elaborates on the advantages of formative assessment and gives some examples to support teachers' use of it. (Contains 1 table.)
