Abstract

This study identified the effect of formative assessment on a group of Indonesian students undertaking the class “Introduction to Australian Culture.” The study also attempts to identify the students’ perceptions and attitudes towards applying this type of assessment in the class. This eight-week study employed the assessment of a class of 79 subjects. These students were placed into small groups of five and assigned to study Australian culture and create a short video on the topic. There is a relatively significant increase in the students’ scores in the second cycle than those of the first cycle. However, there is a decrease in the students’ scores on attitudes and behaviors. It employed a questionnaire and observations to evaluate the students’ attitudes towards assessment for learning. The qualitative and quantitative analysis of the students’ responses shows their positive attitudes towards this assessment type. This type of assessment can be an alternative way of improving assessment for learning practice and to make it more effective in an Indonesian setting.
