[Evidence-based Practice Session Presentation] Purpose: To examine the learning outcomes of nursing school students in a longitudinal study utilizing formative assessment tools. Methods: Questionnaires were collected from one class of 36 Japanese nursing students attending a nursing school in Japan. The questionnaires was distributed following their completion of Fundamentals I. These same 36 students received same questionnaires after completing Fundamentals II. The data was selected using KJ methods. Results: The effect of select formative assessment tools, specifically Class Outcomes, Pretests, and Case Studies, on the learning of Japanese nursing students enrolled in basic nursing education was positive. 'Class Outcomes' demonstrated the most positive effect on student involvement in goal-setting, and willingness and ability to direct class activities to reach those goals. Conclusion: Select formative assessment tools, Class Outcomes, Pretest, and Case study were effective in stimulating learning, but more effective after Fundamentals II than Fundamentals I. The use of formative assessment techniques in the classroom can be highly motivating and stimulating to the development of students who are more self-directed and learning-centered. Fundamentals II students, having a greater wealth of experience to draw from, are more capable of utilizing formative assessment tools to achieve individual goals related to their nursing.
