Field lab (Digital) Formative Assessment

Applying formative assessment in higher education

The Facilitating professional development for lecturerszone has developed the Formative Assessment field lab in collaboration with the University of Twente. This field lab is designed for lecturers in higher education who want to integrate the process of formative evaluation into their education. In various meetings lecturers learn how to:

  1. be able to make learning goals and success criteria explicit for their students;
  2. collect student responses;
  3. to be able to analyze the reactions of students with regard to the learning objectives;
  4. to be able to communicate with students about their learning process;
  5. adapt their education based on the information collected.

In this living lab, teachers evaluate the use of formative assessment based on video recordings of themselves and each other. This leaves room for reflection and the exchange of experiences.

What is formative assessment?

Formative assessment can be defined as the eliciting, interpreting, and using evidence about a student’s learning by lecturers, students, or their peers, to make decisions about the next steps in teaching and learning. This process has recently received a lot of attention in (higher) education, because of the potential to improve students ‘learning outcomes and to guide students’ learning processes. Several factors are important for a successful implementation of formative assessment: a positive attitude and the required knowledge and skills of lecturers, active involvement of students, and facilitation from the educational institution.
