Formative and Summative Assessment
Summative assessment is completed after the understanding of skills have been accomplished. This comes after practicing skills through lessons and discussions. The video stated that summative assessment is basically the test form of what the students have learned. The video considered summative assessment as the center of learning (Rystad, 2013).
My view of formative and summative assessment is that both are neccessary when it comes to the progress of student learning. Teachers have no way of knowing the needs of students without the initial process of determining where their students are. From there they provide instruction to transition students and once that process is complete summative assessment takes place.
