When we talk about assessment what are we actually assessing?
Two Types of Assessment
“When the cook tastes the soup, that’s formative; when the guests taste the soup, that’s summative.”
“All those activities undertaken by teachers and/or by students which provide information to be used as feedback to modify the teaching and learning activities in which they engage.”
~Black and Wiliam
“The purpose of summative assessment is to ‘sum up’ or describe what has been learned over time.”
~Doris Redfield, Ed Roeber,
and Rick Stiggins
