The Purpose of Assessment
- Assessment of Learning is a summative measure of what a student has learned after instruction has ended, such as: unit test, mid-year exam, final exam.
- Assessment for Learning is a formative measure of what the student already knows and does not know, so the teacher may plan future instruction accordingly.
- Assessment as Learning occurs when the assessment is the learning activity, such as the a capstone project, an activity or project that is designed to also be a measure of learning. These are also known as performance assessments and typically include a scoring rubric.
