Formative Assessment Micro-Feedback Loops: Using the Student Centered Accountability for Learning ProcessUnderlying the Student-Centered Accountability for Learning Process is an instructional approach that links student outcomes with teacher practices.

Given feedback specific to identified criteria, teachers have the opportunity to adjust instruction along the way, rather than after optimal learning moments have passed.
