Action Research Project
Master of Arts in Education
The purpose of this action research was to investigate the effects of frequent formative assessment and feedback on the summative assessment. The research took place over a four week period in two Algebra 9 classes with 58 participants. The participants completed a check in form at the beginning and end of the unit, three to five daily quizzes each week, and could participate in a discussion group at the end of the unit. The researcher provided feedback and kept a journal with observations. The data sources were analyzed and the researcher found students who took daily quizzes outperformed those who did not. Daily quizzes will continue to be implemented in the classroom. Future research will investigate the effects frequent formative assessments and feedback has on struggling learners.
