Smarter Balanced defines formative assessment as a deliberate process utilized by teachers and students during instruction to provide actionable feedback, which is then used to adjust ongoing teaching and learning strategies to improve students’ attainment of curricular learning targets/goals.
An Instructional Resource is a file in the Digital Library that helps educators focus their instruction on the South Dakota standards using formative assessment practices that help educators develop practices that support more in-depth learning.
A Professional Learning Resource is a file that helps educators deepen their understanding of the South Dakota standards, the formative assessment process, and a balanced assessment system.
Some resources in the Digital Library serve both purposes and are labeled Combination of Instructional and Professional Learning Resource.
