The Place of Formative Evaluations in Assessment and Ways To Reap Their Benefits.
Nuhfer, Edward B.
Journal of Geoscience Education, v44 n4 p385-94 Sep 1996
Asserts that assessment requires measuring of results, evaluation of the processes that lead to results, and a commitment to promote change for the better. Describes several formative tools that have been used in both laboratory and lecture geology classes, shows how they complement the fairly universal summative evaluation, and demonstrates how formative data can be used to obtain improvements.
