  1. Can anyone suggest some tools for quantifying formative assessments ?

    Yes - dont!!

    Formative assessment is not about quantities, levels or grades. It's about working with the students to find the next steps in their learning.
  3. Hello sir!!!!!

    Me too searching the same..but from what I read extensively on this confirms that FA needn't be quantified..general classroom observations, feedback, marking of work, homework, summative assessments (the formative aspect of it- whether all learning intentions are met ) are more than enough....reports can be written on formative assessment after a week's teaching & learning.

    try this link:


  4. Agree with p1j39 - Dylan Wiliam argued that if your formative assessment involved putting anything into a spreadsheet, then it wasn't formative assessment.
