The Purpose and Power Behind Low-Stakes and No-Stakes Assessments
What’s the purpose of formative assessment? Will the practice test you’ve selected work as you intended? And how much value should it be given toward the students’ grades? The answers depend on the way the assessment was designed to be used. In this session, we wade into the gray areas between types of practice assessments—in-lesson practice, end-of-chapter quizzes, and practice-for-proctored assessments—to understand how these are designed differently and how to select, design, and use the right assessment tool for your needs.
