OECD/CERI 2016: Learning in the 21st Century – Research, Innovation and Policy & Assessment for Learning Formative Assessment

Assessment for Learning Formative Assessment provides findings on learning, drawn from recent analyses undertaken by Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI), part of The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The case begins with analysis of the formative approach in exemplary practice carried out in secondary schools in eight education systems. The second half of the case comprises key analyses on formative assessment in adult language, literacy, and numeracy provision, and a framework for strengthening policy and practice across the sector as well as for building the evidence base.
