Formative Assessment in Primary Science
Loughland, Tony; Kilpatrick, Laetitia
Education 3-13, v43 n2 p128-141 2015
This action learning study in a year three classroom explored the implementation of five formative assessment principles to assist students' understandings of the scientific topic of liquids and solids. These principles were employed to give students a greater opportunity to express their understanding of the concepts. The study found that the principles of formal assessment worked well in concert with the pedagogical framework of the interactive teaching model.
