As California moves forward with implementing the Common Core State Standards, educators and policymakers are focusing on formative assessment as a powerful and under-utilized resource in the state’s classrooms. The instructional transformation that the Common Core promises depends on teachers to incorporate formative assessment into their classroom practice, in order to elicit and interpret evidence, provide feedback, and continuously adapt their teaching to foster their students’ learning. This policy seminar offers an overview of what formative assessment is, and why it matters. A panel of educators and researchers will explore the challenges and opportunities in building teachers’ capacity to engage effectively in formative assessment, and identify policy and practice strategies to encourage the use of formative assessment in California schools.
