Formative Assessments


Formative assessments are ongoing and assessed during regular 1:1 reading/writing conferences with each learner.  Through a learner's formative work, much of which is recorded in a

reader's & writer's digital notebook, the learner demonstrates readiness for a summative assessment.

Formative assessments are a gateway to the summative assessments which demonstrate competency. Learners must demonstrate the authenticity and originality of their formative work before starting a summative assessment.

Formative Assessments are equal to 10% of your final grade for a marking period.
