As reposted before in a previous post, ‘Assessment in the Classroom’ – check it out for more detail – assessment is a must for effective teaching. It is used to improve pupils’ learning as well as teaching.
Teachers become better and students become effective learners when evidence is used to guide instruction and learning.
For this reason, there are different types of assessment that are equally valuable. They serve different purposes, depending on how the data is used. The two most commonly used, formative and summative assessment, are the ones that cause the greatest confusion .
The video below was created to clear confusion and give a simple explanation of the two.
I hope it helps clarify the two. Enjoy and share if you like it! ❤
Till next time…
