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.
