Assessment

Art, Music, and Physical Education will share information about their assessments with parents and students.

 

Teachers use three kinds of assessment:

1.     Diagnostic – used before teaching/learning begins to see where a student is. Not used in calculating grade.  

2.     Formative – used while teaching/learning is going on to see what a student is learning. Sometimes used in grading when appropriate and announced.

3.     Summative – used after teaching/learning has taken place to see what a student Knows/Understands/Can Do. Usually used in grading.
