Formative Assessment in Law Schools - Discussion and Evaluation of Available Tools

Formative Assessment is a red hot topic in law schools right now.  Recent changes in the ABA Accreditation Standards are intended to guide and focus law school efforts to incorporate more formative assessment in teaching.  

This session is born out of a series of discussions among members of the CALI Assessment Special Interest Group (SIG) where we attempted to list many of the tools that are being considered or used for formative assessment in law schools AND create a method of evaluating the different tools.

The result is a Google Document that is we want to share in the future  and invite contribution from others.

After a brief introduction to the problem space, we will talk about how to evaluate formative assessment tools and cover specific examples to highlight the different nature of the tools in the space.
