Formative Assessment and Making Learning Visible.

I have been reading about formative assessment and making learning visible for students, two topics I am extremely interested in.

I have read the books below and I highly recommend them.

The first is "Visible Learning for Teachers" by John Hattie.

Another book is "Visible Learners".  Promoting Reggio-Inspired Approaches in all Schools. 

and last but not least,

“An assessment functions formatively to the extent that evidence about student achievement is elicited, interpreted and used by teachers, learners, or their peers to make decisions about the next steps in instruction that are likely to be better, or better founded, than the decisions they would have made in the absence of the feedback. ”
