Formative Assessment is a range of formal and informal assessment procedures conducted by teachers during the learning process in order to modify teaching and learning activities to improve student attainment. Teachers check for understanding along the way and student performance guides their decision making about future instruction. Formative assessments provide feedback to students so they can improve their performance.
Digital portfolios, or e-portfolios, are often used with PBL as a way to share student work.
Seesaw is a free site offering student driven digital portfolios. Students capture learning with photos and videos of physical work, or by adding digital creations. Everything is uploaded and kept organized for teachers.
