Does formative assessment begin and end with a quiz?

It’s true: many of the most popular formative assessment and student-response apps like Kahoot!, Plickers, and Socrative make giving and scoring quizzes easy and efficient. They also give teachers great feedback on learning and instruction. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. To unlock formative assessment’s full potential, go beyond the bar chart and get students to reflect on their own learning goals, areas for growth, and next steps.
