Abstract

ThinkLink Learning has developed an online formative assessment model that helps teachers and students prepare throughout the year for end-of-year state and national summative assessments. Four aspects of the ThinkLink system are discussed in this chapter: (a) how online formative assessment can help improve student learning on standards tested at a state or national level, (b) the advantages and disadvantages of using online assessment, (c) three case studies that demonstrate the predictive validity of this system and its use in improving student learning, and (d) future trends in the use of online assessment and directions in measuring student learning on standardized tests. In general, ThinkLink Learning has pioneered online solutions to large-scale assessment problems.
