Assessment for learning
  • Assessment for learning is any assessment for
    which the first priority in its design and
    practice is to serve the purpose of promoting
    students learning. It thus differs from
    assessment designed primarily to serve the
    purposes of accountability, or of ranking, or of
    certifying competence. An assessment activity can
    help learning if it provides information that
    teachers and their students can use as feedback
    in assessing themselves and one another and in
    modifying the teaching and learning activities in
    which they are engaged. Such assessment becomes
    formative assessment when the evidence is
    actually used to adapt the teaching work to meet
    learning needs.

In a nutshell.
  • Assessment for learning is

    evidence for use by learners and their teachers
    to decide
  • where the learners are in their learning,
  • where they need to go
  • how best to get there
