Formative Assessment in 1st grade

By Francis Carlier

After evaluating 1st grade students at the beginning of the school year in order to better meet their needs (diagnostic evaluation), January, the middle of the year, is the time when teachers check whether the basic learning has gone well. In a very natural way that is not disruptive for the children’s routine, teachers assess their students according to standards proposed by the French National Education.

The goal is not to grade the students but to understand where they are in their learnings, what concepts should be reinforced and those on which we can build. Also, It is an opportunity for students to self evaluate and see their progress.
