Formative quizzes are an effective way of providing students with formative and ongoing feedback on their learning progress. Using a formative quiz can show you and the students to which extent they understand the material, and where there are gaps in their knowledge or misunderstandings that require further attention.
Using a formative quiz can be useful when students have to read material and prepare for the lecture or working group. You can for example set up weekly formative quizzes that will guide their reading and help them to test their understanding of the reading.
