Formative assessment: the future of teaching and learning

The Jacobs Foundation partnered with HundrED in 2021 to launch the Formative Assessment: Improving Learning for Every Child Spotlight. Formative assessment is one approach that helps teachers and students teach and learn more effectively, by allowing them to keep track of how each student’s learning is progressing.

The Formative Assessment: Improving Learning for Every Child Spotlight aims to identify 10-15 impactful and scalable education innovations that promote the systematic use of formative assessments to inform teaching and learning. In total, 129 innovators from 42 countries submitted their innovation to this Spotlight.

The Research Process was particularly rigorous. In order to evaluate the validity of submissions, applicants were asked to submit additional information regarding how, specifically, their innovation integrates formative assessment into students’ learning journey.
