Are you looking for ways to enhance your practice of teaching? Do you need to find new and exciting ways to engage your students? Our Student Engagement and Learning course explores the potential of formative assessment and techniques for improving student learning. We summarize key research on classroom formative assessment and show how these practices have a greater impact on educational achievement than most other reforms. Finally, practical techniques are discussed to help educators incorporate strategies into classroom practice.

Student Engagement and Learning Module 1
Educational Achievement and Formative Assessment

Educational achievement is more important than ever – both for individuals and society. Module one addresses the importance and also the difficulties with raising student achievement levels. The main way to do that is to improve the quality of teachers in our classrooms. We’ll discuss techniques behind professional development and formative assessments.
