    • WHAT IS SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT?Assessment of learning (knowledge and skills)Generally taken by students at the end of a unit and geared to demonstrate thesum of what was learned.Looks at past achievementsSeparated from teachingProduct orientedJudgmentalPrescriptive
    • SUMMARYFormative SummativeWhy? Purpose used as feedback to improve theprocess of learningused to measure the learning thathas taken placeReportTo whom?the learner receives feedback feedback is often in the form of areport to a third party e.g. theHead of Department or parentWhen? this generally happens during thelearning processthis generally tends to be the finalassessment after the learningprocess and is normally linked torewards (pass or fail)How?ExamplesIn the classroom:1. An educator assesses a teamexercise and intervenes afterdiscovering that some members arebeing left out. The result is that theteam functions better.2. A teacher marks an essay andgives comments and advice. Thestudent re-writes the essay inresponse to the comments beforebeing finally assessed.Everyday example:TV programme popularity ratings (ifprogrammes are rated poorly theyknow they must improve)In the classroom:Learners write exams at the end ofthe year to determine who passesand who failsEveryday example: Oscar awards foractors (the little Oscar statue is thereward for excellent performance
