This book is about formative assessment that has a purpose to monitor student learning and provide ongoing feedback to staff and students. It is an assessment for learning. If designed appropriately, it helps students identify their strengths and weaknesses, can enable students to improve their self-regulatory skills so that they manage their education in a less haphazard fashion than is commonly found. It also provides information to the faculty about the areas students are struggling with so that sufficient support can be put in place. Formative assessment can be tutor-led, peer, or self-assessment. Formative assessments have low stakes and usually carry no grade, which in some instances may discourage the students from doing the task or fully engaging with it.
