Formative Assessment and Self-Regulated Learning

Date: December 10, 2020
Location: Webinar

Formative assessment is a set of practices that enable students and teachers to track progress and adjust learning and teaching during lessons as needed. This ideally leads to more dynamic learning and student agency in classrooms which, in turn, is associated with improved student learning.

This webinar discussed the association between formative assessment and self-regulated learning, which was explored in a REL West study that analyzed survey results for more than 1,200 teachers and 24,000 students in three Arizona school districts. The webinar:

  • Described the theory of action underlying the study;
  • Explained and answered questions about the study’s findings on formative assessment and student self-regulated learning; and
  • Shared an example of how one participating Arizona school district has worked to promote key practices highlighted in the study.
