This learning path offers a self-paced, flexible route to becoming a formative assessor who is committed to equity and excellence in diverse classrooms. It helps you blend instructional and assessment “moves” seamlessly, during each lesson, to re-connect students to the subject content while helping everyone check for understanding.

The Formative Assessment (FA) Moves framework introduced in this series will open up new opportunities to help teachers and students recognize, evaluate and use “soft data” that emerges during and across a set of lessons. It invites all to drive towards deeper learning with an open, visible classroom-based formative assessment process committed to continuous improvement.

By offering practical tips, video-based examples, worksheets, and templates, you will have the tools you need to make progress--minute by minute, day by day--with assessment for learning practices rooted in research and what works.
