Formative/formal/summative/testing

Recommended Posts

Hi

I need to do the above and to show types of different assessment and how they support the development of children.

Will try to link it to theory and stages of development.

I know formal is like SATs, and that summative may be end of year tests, but I'd be grateful for other ideas.

 

regards

Summative assessment gives a summary of the pupil's achievements at a particular moment in time. End of key stage assessments are one example and do tend to be formal.

Formative assessment has a prescriptive function to inform future planning through identifying areas of need (including misconceptions). Examples would be teacher observations of pupil progress on a daily basis, including marking of work and pupil discussions. Tend to be informal.
