Alex, High School English Teacher

Students feel safer in their learning with low-stakes formative assignments (which barely affect their grade), and they are more prepared and invested in the summative piece that has come from all of the preparation leading up to it.

“The formative / summative aspect has been life changing for not just the students, but me. Students feel safer in their learning with low-stakes formative assignments (which barely affect their grade), and they are more prepared and invested in the summative piece that has come from all the preparation leading up to it. This has been life-changing for me to assign more meaningful learning tasks and has helped to minimize tedious grading. When students find themselves less motivated or dealing with circumstances beyond their control, they know that if they successfully complete their summative assessments, they are showing mastery.”
