What is Assessment for Learning 'afl'?

Balgownie Public School is a continually improving learning community that integrates formative assessment and values the enhanced learning that occurs as result. Formative assessment as defined by Black and Wiliam
(2009) is, “the extent that evidence about student achievement is elicited, interpreted, and used by teachers, learners, or their peers, to make decisions about the next steps in instruction that are likely to be better, or better founded, than the decisions they would have taken in the absence of the evidence that was elicited.”
