Formative Instructional Practices/Integrated Comprehensive Systems

Formative Instructional Practices

Formative Instructional Practices (FIP) are the formal and informal ways that teachers and students gather and respond to evidence of learning. It helps to think about learning as a journey, and formative instructional practices can guide teachers and students along the way.

These practices include four components: Clear Learning Targets, Collecting and Documenting Evidence, Student Ownership and Effective Feedback. Research shows that integrating these components into daily practice can increase teacher effectiveness and student learning.

Elise Frattura and Colleen Capper is an equity-focused work that takes a systems approach to eliminate inequities for all students.
