Formative assessment is a variety of methods used by teachers to conduct evaluations of student comprehension, learning needs, and academic progress during a lesson or course.
Academic Approach’s Formative Assessment Builder empowers educators to build skills-based formative assessments and track growth of essential skills throughout the year. Using the Formative Assessment Builder, teachers can use our bank of questions to create a suite of assessments—bell ringers, exit tickets, weekly quizzes, etc.–that test and build student readiness in bite-sized blocks.
Our FAB provides educators access to over 12,000 ACT-aligned items and 8,000 SAT-aligned items that strengthen college readiness skills. This online tool also features over 90 pre-made assessments that are aligned to the SAT’s most frequently occurring standards. We will launch ACT aligned pre-made assessments in the 2020-2021 school year.
FAB also provides a unique grading portal. Our system creates custom student bubble sheets to scan and automatically upload student responses. When responses have been uploaded, our system analyzes and tracks student data, generating various reports designed to give teachers actionable feedback to incorporate into their daily instruction.
