NC FALCON is North Carolina's Formative Assessment Learning Community's Online Network

NC FALCON provides teachers with a basic introduction to using formative assessment and the role it plays in a comprehensive assessment system. Formative assessment helps teachers identify gaps in their students' understanding of new material and should drive daily instruction. A comprehensive, balanced assessment system includes formative assessment, interim/benchmark assessments, and statewide assessments that are aligned to state standards.
