Formative assessment Definition
« on: August 08, 2015, 02:32:38 PM »
Formative assessment is assessment designed to support and inform educators and learners to ensure continuing progress towards the outcomes, unit standards and skills programmes or qualifications targeted. In the schooling sector it is also known as continuous assessment (or CASS). It is used during the course of learning to support the learner by giving him/her feedback on progress. It can be used for diagnostic and remedial purposes, and can be used to build up and document a candidate profile over time in order to contribute evidence of competence to feed into summative results linked to the award of credit.

The main purpose of formative assessment is to support learning, and it can be described as developmental. The  SETA expects formative assessment to be built into programmes offered by accredited providers.
