Formative assessments provide

educators, parents, and students with feedback during the learning process

in order to modify teaching and learning abilities

to improve student achievement.

Formative assessments can be developed

 for all subjects and grades, not limited to questions aligned to state standards

for common subjects such as

English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.

Formative assessments can be used

 to guide instruction to optimize student learning

in preparation for succeeding in future studies,

careers, and life-long goals.
