Formative Assessments Link Measurement and Instruction

Many presentations at the annual CCSSO conference on Large Scale Assessment, taking place here in sunny San Antonio, reference the need to expand testing to include more formative assessments.

Pearson Educational Measurement has our own set of formative assessments know as PASeries. A white paper describing how PASeries was developed and how it might be used to improve student learning, as well as other information regarding PASeries, are available here at the conference and are quite popular. Check out PASeries and see for yourself.
