Impacting Learning Outcomes
Formative assessment has a significant impact on students’ understanding. It helps teachers better meet students’ learning needs and allows students to gain greater insights into the learning process. The PlanWise tool helps teachers implement formative assessment strategies in six critical practice areas. These strategies are useful in any instructional setting, whether working with students in person, fully remote or via a hybrid model.
- Using Learning Goals
- Eliciting Student Understanding
- Peer Feedback
- Student Self-Assessment
- Formative Feedback

Our work with teachers has shown that integrating the PlanWise tool into lesson planning means less time spent searching, a greater consideration of critical formative assessment practices and an increased likelihood of implementation with students.
