Objectives

Measure Get objective information about


learners performance (students take a reading
test).
Assess Analyze and interpret information about
a learners performance (teacher corrects the
reading test, analyzes which questions were
difficult for learners, how different learners
performed and how the whole class performed).
Evaluate Make decisions based on information
about a learners performance (teacher gives
learners a grade based on their performance on
the reading test).

. What is the purpose of


assessment?
Diagnostic assessment
Done before the teaching process
begins, at the beginning of an
academic year or unit of study.
Diagnostic assessment helps teachers
prepare to teach a group of
students.

Formative assessment

Done during the teaching process,


to see if the instructional
techniques are effective.

Summative assessment
Done after the teaching process, to
see what students have learned.
Learners are usually evaluated on
summative assessment results.

Assessment vs testing
Bob Adamson argued that testing does
not equate with the assessment.
Testing is apart of the assessment, but it
is only one means of gathering
information about a student.
The focus in testing is on

the norm.

finding

Assessment is broader than testing.


It implies evaluation based on a
collection of information about
what students know and can do.
The teacher is looking for progress over
time in a variety of contexts.

Good evaluation can motivate


learners to study.

Poor or unfair evaluation


techniques may make learners
motivated to study.

The word assess


comes from the Latin verb assidere
meaning to sit with.
In assessment one is supposed to sit with
the learner.
This implies it is something we do with and
for students and not to students.
(J M Green, 1998)

The word assessment


Assessment in education is the
process of gathering, interpreting,
recording, and using information
about pupils responses to an
educational task.
(Harlen, Gipps, Broadfoot, Nuttal,1992)

What is formative assessment ?


If we think of our children as

plants
Summative assessment of the
plants is the process of simply
measuring them.
It might be interesting to
compare and analyze
measurements but, in
themselves, these do not affect
the growth of the plants.
Formative assessment, on the
other hand, is the equivalent of

and a Cooking Analogy


When the chef tastes
the sauce it is formative
assessment, when the
customer tastes it, it is
summative
Attributed to Professor Robert Stake

Question : why assess ?


We assess to help pupils learn
(formative assessment)
And
to judge how much they have learned
(summative assessment)

What is AFL = Assessment For


Learning or Formative Assessment ?
Assessment for learning is the process of seeking and
interpreting evidence for use by learners and their
teachers to decide where the learners are in their
learning, where they need to go and how best to get
there.
Assessment Reform Group, UK 2002

Assessment is formative when the evidence


gained is actually used to adapt the teaching
to meet the needs of the students.
(Paul Black and Dylan Wiliam)

How can Assessment for


learning applied in our daily
teaching work?
