Formative assessment operates to advance teaching approaches and resultant individual learning experiences, assisting in the clarification and achievement of student learning outcomes. This study aims to assess the association between student engagement with formative assessment and overall achievement in a undergraduate course. Results demonstrated that engagement in formative assessment yields predictive utility with respect to overall course achievement. These findings suggest the importance of further research assessing the potential benefits of such forms of assessment to facilitate learning processes and student experiences.
