Formative Assessment - A Powerful Strategy for Improving Mathematics Teaching and Learning

Michigan is home to a growing statewide formative assessment movement.  The FAME Project (Formative Assessment for Michigan Educators) is in its fifth year of training formative assessment coaches and team members in schools around the state.

FAME is sponsored by Michigan's Bureau of Assessment and Accountability (BAA) and the Michigan Assessment Consortium (MAC).  Please see the formative assessment resources on the BAA website as well as those on the MAC website.
