This Blog content will show you how to optimize effectiveness as a teacher by conducting Formative Assessments on the Edves portal.
Effective learning, which is one of the teacher’s greatest accomplishments on the job, is measured by a student's performance.
Formative Assessment therefore helps teachers identify aspects that learners are struggling with, skills they experience difficulty developing, or learning standards they are yet to achieve so that adjustments can be made to lessons, instructional techniques over even academic support. No teacher wants to feel less adequate, that’s definitely one of the worst feelings ever.
With Formative Assessment, a teacher is able to examine the student's learning progress and achievement within a specific period. It is an integral part of the learning process which is conducted to see where students are in their learning journey, assisting both the teacher and the learner identify strengths and weaknesses, and immediately manage learning struggles to enhance performance.
