Week 3 – Question 3

As a student I look at summative tests as personal challenges with potentially great rewards (high scores).

As a day-to-day sub I like summative tests because they keep students focused and controlled for the whole class.

As a future teacher I prefer formative assessments because I want my students to learn and, as we’ve read, the proper use of formative assessments provides feedback that can guide future class activities. My goal is to have my students look at summative assessments the same way that I do, as rewards for all the hard work they’ve done.
