Assessment - Health Education

Formative Assessment

Often called assessment for learning, formative assessment provides ongoing feedback between the teacher and student to improve teaching and learning.  Assessment for learning helps students identify their strengths, weaknesses, and target areas for further learning.  It also helps teachers recognize where students are struggling so they can address the problem immediately.

Tools to support the design and development of health education can be found on the Curriculum Design & Development page including assessment.
