Hi Bill, I agree that formative assessment is valuable - constructivist theory tells us that we have to know where our students are at to enable them to progress. I also think Delta dc has a great point about teacher directed assessments and interventions being unsustainable, as students eventually need to monitor their own progress and achievements. Student negotiated Rubrics and self assessment may assist your students to reach those learning goals and you to get some of your life back with your family. We need dedicated professionals like you - don't burn yourself out and leave teaching because you can't do what (mostly researchers, not teachers) makes the biggest gains. Trust yourself and what you know about your students and their learning.
