Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Educators who understand the process and benefits of collecting information on what children know and can do and then using it to guide instruction and promote children’s learning―known as formative assessment―embrace it.

Formative assessment is a critical piece of a balanced, comprehensive system of assessment for young children that also includes screening, diagnostic tests, and summative assessments (Riley-Ayers 2014). It occurs over time in varied situations and through natural observation and documentation in authentic contexts, like a teacher writing an anecdotal note about a toddler’s discovery of different textures while playing with materials in the art area. Formative assessment often involves work samples or products that children generate or create, like a second grader’s poem or a preschooler’s painting. It is the most appropriate assessment approach for young children because their development is highly complex, dynamic, and often erratic and uneven (Ackerman & Coley 2012), which makes it difficult to capture learning through one-time assessments that provide only a snapshot of a child in a particular moment. Formative assessment can also shed light on those areas of a child’s development―such as social and emotional skills and approaches to learning―that other types of assessment often overlook.
