The National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM) and the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE) affirm the centrality of research-based, mathematically focused, formative assessment - a key element in the national effort to improve mathematics proficiency.
These professional development modules assist leaders in "jump starting" formative assessment, K-16. The collection contains an overview and modules, each highlighting one aspect of formative assessment with PowerPoints, Leaders' Notes, and handouts as needed.
Formative assessment needs to be intentionally and systematically integrated into classroom instruction at every grade level. This requires adequate attention in the preparation of new teachers of mathematics and in the continuing education and professional development of current teachers.
