Dimension X: Use of Evidence to Inform Instruction


Formative assessment is a process teachers and students use during instruction that provides feedback that teachers can use to adjust their teaching and students can use to improve their learning, with the overall goal of improving students’ achievement of intended instructional outcomes. Research indicates that instructional adaptations based on evidence of student learning can improve the achievement of students at all levels.

Evidence can come from how a teacher collects and uses evidence from classroom questioning, tasks and activities, student self-assessment, and student peer assessment. This dimension focuses on the teacher’s use of evidence to adjust instruction across the lesson(s) as a whole.
