6 Apps That Can Help with Student Assessment By Jenny Wise Whether a teacher instructs English or mathematics, whether a student learns the alphabet or the theory of relativity, whether you’re instructing in a homeschool setting or the classroom, there is one aspect of education that all teachers and learners face: assessment. Through the act of assessing one’s strengths and weaknesses, either via a formal evaluation or a daily gauge of comprehension, assessment is a vital part of the learning process. However, the methods of assessment do not always provide an accurate representation of an individual’s skills. One reason for the disparity is that the traditional means of assessing student and teacher performance is to compare them to other students and teachers. A better alternative to traditional testing is performing a custom assessment that compares each individual to their past selves. Formative Assessment Tools Learning does not follow the “one size fits all” theory. This is where technology can help in assessment.

Assessment Apps for Teachers Through formative assessment, teachers check student understanding, get valuable data on student learning, and then use that data to modify instruction. When teachers know what students know (or don't know), they can adjust to meet students right at their level. The best formative assessment tools also help students self-reflect and assess, figuring out where they are and where they need to go as learners. These tools and apps for formative assessment success give teachers (and students) many options and opportunities for classroom success.
