Feed-Up, Feedback, Feed Forward: Making Formative Assessment Come Alive

Recorded December 13, 2011

A comprehensive formative assessment system should fit seamlessly within the daily flow of the classroom. But in many places, formative assessment requirements signal an end to instruction so that students can be tested. Join Nancy Frey as she discusses an ongoing approach to formative assessment that enhances the give-and-take relationship between teachers and students to promote learning. This webinar will include examples from elementary and secondary classrooms.


Using Formative Assessment to Meet the Demands of the Common Core State Standards, Part One: Linking Assessment with Content and Quality Instruction

Recorded December 12, 2012

This webinar session grounds formative assessment practices to the instructional shifts of the Common Core ELA/literacy standards. Using a gradual release of responsibility instructional framework, Nancy Frey discusses the opportunities we can create each day to check for understanding to ensure that students are advancing toward the goals of the standards for language arts and literacy. 

See the second part of this formative assessment series, presented by Doug Fisher.

    I like the shared responsibility for learning. Gives more ownership over what is learned.
