SERVE is one of ten regional education research and development (R&D) laboratories funded by the U.S. Department of Education. The SERVE website on Classroom Assessment provides links to resources in three topics: improving assessment in the science classroom; improving assessment in history; and improving formative assessment in literacy.
This website provides relevant online resources about formative assessment practice in the classroom, as well as tools and links to other resources and websites. The website offers an overview and a definition of formative assessment and examples of lessons, such as information on how teachers can incorporate formative assessment practice within their lessons and teaching practice. The website is informative and may be useful to school and district personnel in promoting increased use of formative assessment practice in the classroom.
