The Use of Learning Map Systems to Support the Formative Assessment in Mathematics
Kingston, Neal M.; Broaddus, Angela
Education Sciences, v7 Article 41 2017
Despite much theoretical support, meta-analysis of the efficacy of formative assessment does not provide empirical evidence commensurate with expectations. This theoretical study suggests that teachers need a better organizing structure to allow a formative assessment process to live up to its promise. We propose that the use of learning map systems can provide that structure, and we describe aspects of using learning map systems to support mathematics instruction in two projects: the Dynamic Learning Maps® alternate assessment (DLM) and the Use of Learning Maps as an Organizing Structure for Formative Assessment (also referred to as Enhanced Learning Maps, or ELM).
