Formative Assessment as an Instructional Strategy: Using the Teaching Effectiveness Framework

This presentation examines the intersection of the Feedback & Assessment and Instructional Strategies domains of the Teaching Effectiveness Framework we developed to support teaching at our institution. Formative assessments, also known as checks for understanding, double as instructional strategies that engage students in learning content. The online platform gives all students an opportunity to engage in discussion and low-stakes, mastery quizzes to practice critical thinking with support and feedback from an instructor. When planned strategically, these instructional strategies/formative assessments do not need to produce an overabundance of grading for instructors.
