Formative Instructional Practices

Formative instructional practices (FIP) are the formal and informal ways that teachers and students gather and respond to evidence of learning. These practices help students to become a true partner in the teaching and learning process.

In a culture that embraces FIP, the following components exist:

  • Learning targets are clear
  • Evidence of student learning is collected and documented
  • Feedback is effective
  • Students take ownership of their learning

Research shows that integrating these four components into daily practice can increase student learning and teacher effectiveness. Lubbock ISD educators have access to online FIP courses that were developed to advance the use of these research-based formative instructional practices.
