Assessment is the process of obtaining, analysing and interpreting evidence for use by both pupils and teachers to enable the review, planning and improvement of learning. It is fully integrated with the delivery of the curriculum and is an essential component of effective classroom practice.
Types of assessment:
Formative assessment is assessment for learning (AFL). It is ongoing and provides evidence of and for progression in learning. It supports learning through identifying difficulties, providing feedback and diagnosing future learning priorities. Examples include: Classwork, Homework, Questioning, Oral Discussion, Short Recall, Test/quizzing, Practical Project and Research
Summative assessment is Assessment of Learning. It is used mainly to measure knowledge & skill and identify a standard of pupil attainment. It is carried out at the end of a period of learning. Examples include external examinations, internal school examinations (PPEs and in-class formal assessments) and end of topic/unit tests.
