This chapter addresses the imperative for effective monitoring and progress tracking within the realm of education by introducing three innovative components: a teacher app, a formative learning report (FLR), and a dashboard. These components capitalize on the potential of formative analytics, affording professors a dynamic platform to comprehensively monitor and evaluate student progress, while simultaneously furnishing students with weekly reports that encompass general statistics spanning diverse evaluation components of the course. A survey was administered to 81 first-year undergraduate students enrolled in a management course, all of whom utilized the FLR as part of the Information System Course. The findings of this study underscore the constructive impact of the FLR on students' motivation, selfesteem, and learning outcomes. Nonetheless, the study also revealed areas in need of improvement, with particular emphasis on the necessity for more comprehensive information about student performance. These insights might be valuable for improving the learning process.
