Long-cycle formative assessment

Long-cycle formative assessment might typically take place at the end of an academic year when students complete an end of year examination or when nationally standardised tests take place. Like with medium-cycle formative assessment, information gathered can help draw conclusions about learners’ achievement in different areas of the curriculum and can help inform what teaching and learning needs there are for the cohort of students as they progress into their next year of education, as well as how teaching might be better for the next cohort of students studying that same curriculum.
