As part of First to the Top, the Tennessee Department of Education and Battelle for Kids are pleased to provide all Tennessee K–12 public school educators access to a series of Formative Instruction Online Courses
to help teachers and principals maximize their knowledge of balanced assessment systems, including formative instructional practices.
Developed by Battelle for Kids and grounded in leading experts’ assessment for learning principles, the online courses provide Tennessee educators with the necessary information and resources to use high-quality, daily formative instructional practices that lead to increased student achievement. Enroll in individual courses or in the formative instruction learning path, which offers a suggested course of study to guide learning.
