Formative assessment strategies

Formative assessment is the most powerful tool in our learning design toolkit. When we design learning, we can build in formative assessment strategies to ensure that we know how learners are progressing in their understanding so we can adjust our teaching accordingly. More importantly, formative assessment strategies allow learners to see their progress, reflect on where they are at in their learning journey and understand what they need to do to move forward.

In this section, we have selected a number of formative assessment strategies which you may find useful when design learning around the Digital Technologies curriculum.
