What's the difference?
Formative and Summative are two assessment methods...
The goal of formative assessment is to keep an eye on a student's learning and be able to pro-actively provide ongoing feedback. This feedback will improve the teaching provided to the student and then result in potentially improved learning.
The goal of summative assessment is to evaluate a student's learning and understanding at the end of an instructional unit or period of time. The student will be assessed or tested against an expected standard or defined benchmark level.
