Supporting teachers in formative assessment in the classroom

Research output: ThesisPhD Thesis - Research UT, graduation UT


The integration of formative assessment in school lessons can improve student achievement. However, such positive effects have not yet been realized in many classrooms. Teachers find it difficult to implement formative assessment as it requires a complex set of skills. Teacher professional development can support teachers in becoming proficient in implementing formative assessment in the classroom. In this dissertation, we investigated teachers' needs regarding formative assessment and how we can support them in meeting those needs. Specifically, we provide directions to improve teacher professional development programs for formative assessment, in order to further improve student outcomes in the classroom.
