Assessment Definitions

Achievement Assessment (Summative)

  • An Achievement Assessment is an activity completed when a student has had adequate instruction and practice to learn the material. Examples include unit tests, essays, projects, and presentations. In some cases, a quiz or homework assignment may also be considered an Achievement Assessment.

Learning Activity (Formative)

  • A Learning Activity is a task or assignment within a unit of study given to students to enable learning and provide practice in required content and skills. The learning activity may or may not be graded. Examples include quizzes, homework, in class activities, such as quick-writes or worksheets, or informal assessments, such as teacher questioning and observation.

Learning Activities:

  • A student will be allowed two class period days to complete all missed Learning Activities due to illness (extensions may be granted for extenuating circumstances). After the two day grace period, 10% will be deducted per class meeting that the assignment is not turned in until the point value depletes to zero.
  • Learning activities that are not handed in by the final Achievement Assessment of the unit will result in a zero.
