PTO 6: This is a slideshow of formative and summative assessments. This gives the definitions of each and examples of how to do each assessment. It explains the teacher's role and the student's role in assessment. This is good to learn how to use multiple types of assessments to meet the needs of your learners.
Summative vs. Formative Assessments What’s the difference, anyway? Some like to think of the two as helping one another out – the formative assessments check progress along the way, while the summative assessment serves sort of as the ‘end survey’. While that works as a simplified explanation, there’s much more to it.
