This study examined the way teachers use formative assessment in the middle school classroom. Data was collected through field observations, teacher interviews, and reviewing written responses on student work. The findings showed that implementing formative assessment creates structure and engages students. The findings also show that the lack of formative assessment can cause resistance to what the teacher is trying to accomplish. Based on the literature reviewed and the research data, students engage and respond better to the use of formative assessments.
