The Georgia Department of Education’s Assessment and Accountability Division has launched an online professional learning opportunity dealing with Formative Instructional Practices (FIP).

two keysGeorgia FIP: The Keys to Student Success is designed to enhance educators’ use of formative instructional practices and is aligned to the new teacher and leader effectiveness systems.

The course content is based on the work of Rick Stiggins, Jan Chappius, and others.

Research has shown consistently that effective use of formative assessment leads to significant increases in student achievement, even with learners who have previously struggled.

Georgia FIP consists of seven online modules.

The primary target audience for five of the modules is teachers, while the other two are designed for administrators, coaches and teacher-leaders.

Georgia FIP has four major content components:  (1) Establishing Clear Learning Targets, (2) Collecting and Documenting Evidence of Learning, (3) Providing Effective Feedback, and (4) Developing Student Ownership of Learning.
