Formative Assessment Research Alliance

The Formative Assessment Research Alliance (FARA) was created to provide a forum for regional educators, policymakers, and researchers to discuss and study the role of formative assessment in student learning.

Goals Include…

  • Increasing the use of formative assessment (strategies, programs, frameworks, etc.) in classrooms and learning from those initiatives
  • Increasing the use of research, data, and analysis by policymakers and practitioners as they relate to formative assessment
