Formative Assessment in Mathematics for Engineering Students
Ní Fhloinn, Eabhnat; Carr, Michael
European Journal of Engineering Education, v42 n4 p458-470 2017
In this paper, we present a range of formative assessment types for engineering mathematics, including in-class exercises, homework, mock examination questions, table quizzes, presentations, critical analyses of statistical papers, peer-to-peer teaching, online assessments and electronic voting systems. We provide practical tips for the implementation of such assessments, with a particular focus on time or resource constraints and large class sizes, as well as effective methods of feedback. In addition, we consider the benefits of such formative assessments for students and staff.
