Value in Formative Assessments

PART OF THE CREATIVE multimedia degree programme running at the Limerick Institute of Technology involves formative assessments during several modules.

I conduct a series of team interviews in the campaign phase of the PR module when I offer qualitative feedback to students about client briefs, treatments, storyboards, use of project management software and time-keeping. I use formative assessments to determine whether I should change my approach as a lecturer. On several occasions, Feedback from formative assessments has helped me modify the emphasis I place on learning objectives. When I worked as an Air Force instructor pilot, formative assessment was essential because of the need to address student pilot performance. In my current practise, feedback also helps improve performance while simultaneously improving the content I deliver.
