The three emerging market trends driving the global K-12 testing and assessment market according to Technavio research analysts are:

  • Increasing emphasis on formative learning tools
  • Rise in cloud computing
  • Growing use of games for assessment

Increasing emphasis on formative learning tools

Formative assessment consists of the assessment of students as and when they progress with learning. A teacher acts as a facilitator rather than a teacher due to formative learning. It also helps in diagnosing the weak areas of learners and provide them with feedback. This method also helps teachers in improving their teaching. Many educators are increasingly investing in various formative assessment tools to improve their teaching methods to provide experimental learning to students, due to the rise in the adoption of digital content and the growing popularity of online learning.

“Teachers can provide quick feedback to students while teaching by using formative learning tools. They can monitor student activities on devices. Teachers can integrate a variety of testing components such as presentations and quiz tools by using formative assessment. It also helps teachers to assess students while they watch a video with embedded questions,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on K-12 and higher education.
