What’s New in Formative Assessment: Insights from US Schools
It is with excitement and warm cordiality that the HSE Institute of Education invites you to attend an online open session as part of its regular ‘Novel Perspectives on Childhood Research’ seminar series, titled:
What Is DAACS?
The Diagnostic Assessment and Achievement of College Skills (DAACS) is a no-stakes, open-source, formative assessment tool designed to measure newly enrolled college students’ reading, writing, mathematics, and self-regulated learning (SRL) skills, and provide them with feedback and resources to enhance their functioning and success.
About the Speaker
Angela M. Lui is DAACS Project Manager and Adjunct Assistant Professor at CUNY School of Professional Studies, USA.
Angela’s research focuses on formative assessment, student response to feedback, and the implications for attainment in subject-related and meta-subject capacities of learners. In particular, together with fellow scholars, Angela explores how students perceive and process teacher commentary they receive in a formative assessment context and how they use these inputs in shaping their learning efforts going forward.
