Weekly Legal Education Roundup

Comment: Frequent formative assessment with prompt feedback is probably the most important tool law schools can use to improve legal education.  It provides active learning, it let's students know how they are doing while they are learning, and it increases student confidence and motivation.  Law professors need to integrate formative assessment into all their classes, especially first-year ones.

Above I have listed an excellent post on formative assessment by Larry Cunningham.  It is from a blog that Dean Cunningham has stated on formative assessment: Law School Assessment.
