Formative and Summative Assessments
My ideas on these assessments is that they are both necessary when grasping the beginning, middle, and end of a students learning with you. At the beginning of the year and throughout one may want to do more formative assessments to gauge where a child is and where to scaffold their learning next. Formative is more of a process. Summative is more of the end of the process to me. This is where we would see what the child has learned cumulatively.
