Example text

Sadler 1989) A number of writers argue that ‘pure’ formative assessment does not include marks and grades, and Sadler concurs with this view: A grade therefore may actually be counterproductive for formative purposes. In assessing the quality of a student’s work or performance, the teacher must possess a concept of quality appropriate to the task, and be able to judge the student’s work in relation to that concept. (Sadler 1989) 14 THE VALUE OF FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT 1111 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1011 1 2 3111 4 5 6 7 8 9 20111 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 30111 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 4011 Nevertheless, many assessors feel that for students, particularly those working to demonstrate capability in live and practical skills, some kind of indication of level of achievement is valuable, and that formative assessment is principally a means by which tutors can support the development of their students’ understanding and encourage them to progress by providing feedback that is meaningful to the individual.

To recognise, and respond to, student learning in order to enhance that learning, during learning. (Cowie and Bell 1999) (our italics) WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FORMATIVE AND SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT? Sadler, who has written extensively about the powerful impact that formative assessment can have on achievement, suggests: Summative contrasts with formative assessment in that it is concerned with summing up or summarizing the achievement status of a student, and is geared towards reporting at the end of a course of study especially for purposes of certification.

Explore further the uses of computer-assisted formative assessment. While computer-assisted assessment (CAA) is used in some contexts summatively, many would argue that it is most powerfully used to support formative feedback, especially where automatically generated by email. Students seem to really like having the chance to find out how they are doing, and attempt tests several times in an environment where no one else is watching how they do. Another benefit is that CAA systems allow you to monitor what is going on across a cohort, enabling you to concentrate your energies either on students who are repeatedly doing badly or those who are not engaging at all in the activity.
