Best Practice to Successful Teaching and Learning using Formative Assessments

Have you ever wondered why students are not comprehending material being covered in class. Researchers indicate that formative assessment helps students gauge how well they are doing, develop awareness of their knowledge and engages them in evaluating their own performance. Formative assessment helps both faculty and students measure how well they are doing. Formative assessment might be your solution to your class or online course.
