Abstract: The m-FAS is a methodology of embedding automatic feedback concept of automatic control system theory into the pedagogical process for enhancing learning process by quick delivery of formative assessment for large number of students. Feedback is the core concept of system theory, it has enormous benefits in engineering design, it is inherited practice in natural systems, and it has been shown in the pedagogical research that feedback proved positive impact on students learning. Formative assessment is one practice of feedback, pedagogical research has recently emphasized on its role and the importance of delivery it quickly to the students, however this becomes real challenge when targeting large numbers classes. The time delay in Formative Assessment (FA) delivery can be greatly reduced utilizing short SMS messages sent to the students mobile numbers during the learning process and by developing an automated mechanism of implementing (FA)messages for large number of students. In this papers, we propose systematic architecture of general framework that can be used for generating formative assessment data and delivering it by SMS messages.
