Formative assessment is a process used by teachers and students during instruction that provides explicit feedback to adjust ongoing teaching and learning to improve students' achievement of intended instructional outcomes. Formative assessment is a method of continually evaluating students' academic needs and development within the classroom and precedes local benchmark assessments and state-mandated summative assessments.Teachers who engage in formative assessments give continual, explicit feedback to students and assist them in answering the following questions:1.
