The aim of this quasi-experimental study was to show the impact of immediate feedback of formative electronic tests in the motivation for learning and educational achievement of 8th grade students. In order to achieve the objectives of this study, the students in the experiment group (n=21) went through a continuous and consistent intervention of receiving immediate feedback for their responses during the formative assessments in the first-unit of science "Living Organisms and Their Environment" using electronic tests, while the control group (n=19) was not provided by immediate feedback during the formative assessments using electronic tests. An analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was conducted that revealed a statistically significant difference in the science achievement and in the motivation for learning of students who received immediate feedback using formative electronic tests. Therefore, recommendations included using the immediate feedback of the electronic formative tests in science.
