ACD Session No: 395 : Formative Assessment Techniques for Classroom Concluded on Saturday, October 7 2017

Formative assessment is an alternative approach to the traditional summative assessment that dominates our classrooms. Formative assessment can be used as a potentially constructive tool for learning and teaching. The principles of feedback and feedforward underlie this assessment that provides multiple benefits such as learners’ autonomy, enhanced motivation, more conducive learning environment and team work to name a few. However, formative assessment is not used extensively in our classrooms because teachers are either unaware or untrained. This workshop is intended to acquaint the teachers with the day-to-day classroom activities that they can integrate within their classroom teaching to assess their students as well as to modify their instructions without spending hours in grading.
