The formative assessment in classrooms should be a process not just a tool. Teachers should collect assessment information from kids by use many methods as a continuous process and then arrange the information collected. For example, they can do this by observing and investigating the kid’s characters and behaviors in the classroom. They can also give the children simple tasks and assess their performance. Teachers should consider the age bracket of the kids when selecting the assessment method to make sure that the assessment content aligns with what the children of that age are expected to be able to do.
