The Qualitative Formative Assessment Toolkit: Document Learning with Mobile Technology

Some call it anecdotal or informal assessment. However, such designations imply passivity -- as if certain things were captured accidentally. I believe the word "formative" should always be included with the word assessment because all feedback mechanisms should help shape and improve the person (or situation) being assessed. Wedging the word "qualitative" into my terminology differentiates it from the analytic or survey-based measures that some associate with the term formative assessment.

The purpose of assessing background knowledge is not to get everyone on the “same page,” but rather to make visible the nature of what a student knows (rather than a list or academic labels like “proficient).

This makes it possible to create personalized learning pathways for students as each learner approaches new–or familiar–thinking on their own terms. From a planning point of view, it can also allow teachers to identify knowledge gaps, prioritize standards, and revise imminent lessons and units in response.
