Formative Assessment Assistance

As you are developing your plans for addressing the needs of the kids in your classes this fall, it is important that you utilize formative assessments. There are many writers who have suggestions to help you with what formative assessments are and what they aren't. See some of my previous posts on this blog for some key information. Writers such as Rick Stiggins, Anne Davies, Rick Wormlei, and others have much to share.

The Georgia Department of Education has its own initiative to help with formative assessment. It is called FIP. If you are a Georgia educator you will need to get an access code from your school system curriculum director to access the training information and videos. Go to to see what they have to help you.
