the difference between Summative, Formative, & Diagnostic Assessment
"Without the benefit of knowing how to assess and regulate their own learning, they try to perform well on assignments without knowing exactly where they are headed, what they need to do to get there, and how they will tell when they have arrived."
Assessment for Learning
Formative Assessment Defined...
An active, continual process in which teachers and students work together - every day, every minute - to gather evidence of learning.
Guiding Questions:
Where am I going?
Where am I now?
What strategy or strategies can help
me get to where I need to go?
"Without the benefit of knowing how to assess and regulate their own learning, they try to perform well on assignments without knowing exactly where they are headed, what they need to do to get there, and how they will tell when they have arrived."
