What Are Formative Assessments?

In-class formative assessments are among the most effective student engagement strategies. They are a crucial component of learning that can help assess student understanding during lectures, offer valuable opportunities to gauge student progress, provide targeted remediation, and even adjust the curriculum as needed. ExamNow is a completely digital formative assessment solution that allows educators at all levels to engage students directly.

ExamNow Makes Formative Assessments Seamless

ExamNow is a web-based application that students don’t have to download. Students can access ExamNow from any device including smartphones, allowing them to begin the exam within seconds.

ExamNow tallies student responses and aggregates the data immediately, showing results as soon as each question is completed. This immediate feedback allows you to discuss results and answer questions while the material is still fresh in students’ minds.

Superior Data Capabilities

Questions can be tagged with the same categories that you created in the main ExamSoft platform. This function, combined with ExamNow’s in-depth data reporting, allows you to assess student progress on the exact learning objectives that you plan to test for in your summative assessments.

In addition to showing the questions students answered correctly or the ones they missed, ExamNow provides a clear, holistic view of student learning that allows you to measure their progress against basic course-level learning objectives, specific accreditation standards, and even cognitive measures like Bloom’s Taxonomy.
