Using Formative Assessment
Anita wants to be able to help her children with their homework. They have recently installed an Internet enabled PC at home. Anita signed up for a beginners’ course at a ‘Learning Shop’ six weeks ago and has attended on a drop-in basis for about three hours each week. Anita is highly motivated, but she is struggling to follow the instructional workbooks used by the Learning Shop. She finds there is too much reading and that she quickly forgets what she did in the previous chapter. Last time she came to the Learning Shop she only stayed for half-an-hour. She seems to be losing heart.
Ahmed is a tutor at the Learning Shop. He is currently studying for a teaching qualification and has been learning about how formative assessment can motivate learners and help tutors to improve and adapt their teaching to meet learners’ needs. He wants to use formative assessment to help Anita. How do you think he should do?

Ahmed should start with one formative assessment from the Learning Shop for implementation. Start small and then incorporate more as he gets more comfortable with the classroom and the different types of formative assessments from the Learning Shop.

Perhaps, Ahmed can find a way to determine the curriculum and assess Anita’s current skills. Based on the data, Ahmed can design lessons that meet Anita’s needs to manage the reading and formatively assess her to determine the direction of the next tutoring session. The direct one-on-one communication may help motivate Anita as she is understanding concepts and is more successful in the class.

Ahmed should begin with one formative assessment from a chapter of the learning workshop. As Anita begins working on lessons from the instructional workbook, he can incorporate more formative assessments to measure her level of understanding. Once she is comfortable with the assessments, Ahmed can begin incorporating a variety of assessments.
