Improving Classroom Practice by using Formative Assessment

Lecturer: Dylan Wiliam. Program Area: Assessment/ Strand: Organizational Development / Grade Level: K-12.

Dylan Wiliam, is Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment at the Institute of Education, University of London. He pursued a research program focused on supporting teachers to develop their use of assessment in support of learning.


As every teacher knows, students do not learn what we teach. That is why classroom formative assessment is the bridge between teaching and learning. It is only through assessment that we can find out whether what we did as teachers resulted in the students learning what was intended. Far from being an optional “add-on” to instruction, therefore, classroom formative assessment is at the heart of effective teaching. In this session, participants will learn about the five key strategies of classroom formative assessment, and a number of associated practical techniques that teachers can use immediately in their classrooms
