Formative Assessment in tracking learner progress Formative assessment (assessment for learning) is engaged during a course or programme. This is the type of assessment used and it allows teachers to adjust targets and objectives to suit the student until they develop skills and become more confident. Formative assessment is usually informal (Formative informal) and can take place at any time during the teaching and learning process. Feedback from formative assessment will be beneficial to both student and teacher as it not only allows the student to recognize their success and look at areas for development but it allows the teacher to evaluate the effectiveness of their teaching and look to improve on future sessions. Formative assessment is often seen as being motivational as it can be seen as a review rather than an assessment.

Gatto says, "teachers tend to blame the kids, as you might expect"(pg. 683) from personal experiences I can say that I have had great relationships with my teachers throughout elementary school and especially High school.
It appears that the problem is not so cut and dry. According to a study done by Richard Ingersoll, University of Pennsylvania, the 56% of the teacher’s dissatisfaction with teaching prominently minority/low-income students was that they weren’t paid enough. (Renewing our Schools, Securing our Future Nov. 2004) More than half the teachers felt that they weren’t paid enough to have to deal with these children. In some cases the problem doesn’t lie with the individual teachers but with policy or decisions being made from a district, city or state level.

The class was playing a game where they close their eyes and when they hear the piano start to play the get up and walk in a circle. They closed their eyes but when the piano started playing she did not get up.
Some schools’ mission statement is the modern equivalent to a motto. “Although our pupils achieve well, we are interested in more than just results. We aim to provide an inspiring, stimulating and enjoyable education for all our pupils, introducing them to a wealth of exciting experiences across the whole curriculum.” How is this reflected? : The pupils’ achievements not only academic but also sporting, artistic, performing and behaviour, both in and out of school are recognised.

This move resulted in a middle and high school certified band director having to go down to the primary school and teach 1st grade general music instead of going to the elementary school and teaching beginner band.

However, they soon realized they had completely forgotten to include a band room in the plans for the new school, so the beginner band met in the corner of the cafeteria. Due to the scheduling at the middle school, the only time to hold this band class in the cafeteria was when
