A number of instructional strategies, if implemented correctly, can be used formatively to assess student learning. The first strategy--developing criteria and setting expectations in the classroom--involves students in the learning process and creates concise goals. "To be successful, students need to understand and know the learning target/goal and the criteria for reaching it." Goals can be developed in either two ways. One approach, as suggested by Chappuis and Chappuis, is for teachers to provide students with "a list of the learning targets they are responsible for mastering, written in student-friendly language." Using this approach gives students an idea of where their work needs to be and how to get there. Another approach is for students to work together as a class to establish classroom norms and define quality work.
