Vision and Purpose
Formative and interim assessments and the use of their data to guide classroom instruction at the individual student level result in increased academic success. Indiana’s Formative (Interim) Assessment Grant provides funding to schools for formative assessment programs, tools, and professional development in order to increase data-driven instructional practices and enrich learning for all students.
All Indiana public school corporations, charter schools, and accredited nonpublic schools (including choice schools) are eligible to apply for this grant. Assessment programs and tools are targeted for students in grades K through 10.
