Formative assessment is a systematic process of collecting evidence about students’ thinking and progress toward a learning goal to inform instruction while simultaneously promoting conceptual learning. It happens throughout the learning process. It is assessment for learning rather than assessment of learning; and sometimes it is assessment as learning.
All individuals receive a certificate of participation and 100 NSTA activity points for attending the live seminar and completing the end-of-program survey. A certificate of participation is not awarded for watching the recorded version of the program.
