Handout Formative Assessment

After the Digital Peer Feedback handout and the Online Didactics handout, the Facilitating Professional Development for lecturers zone now also has the Formative Assessment handout available. This handout gives you as a teacher a handy basis for the design of (digital) formative assessments.

After all, real acceleration doesn’t take place in the zone, but within a training course. That is why, as the Professional Development zone, we design our own range of professionalisation around educational innovations, and we try this out within our own institutions. Others can benefit from this too.

The handouts are part of the “Living Labs for Professionalisation” of the zone. In these testing grounds, institutions try out professionalisation approaches and follow these with research. The living labs are designed around four themes: peer feedback, online didactics, learning analytics, and formative assessment.
