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.
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.

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