A Visual Chart on Summative Vs Formative Assessment ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Visual Chart on Summative Vs Formative Assessment ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Assessment Resources | Scoop.it

I think This post is born out of a discussion I had with a fellow teacher on the Facebook page of Educational Technology and Mobile Learning on the differences between summative and formative assessment. Luckily this discussion coincided with me reading Frey and Fisher's book " Literacy 2.0 : Reading and Writing in The 21st Century Classroom." and there was a section in which the authors talked about these differences in a subtle way by referring to formative assessment as assessment for learning and summative assessment as assessment of learning.

Greg Mohlke's insight:

This at-a-glance chart really defines summative and formative assessment concisely. I'm going to keep this chart handy so I don't confuse the two-types of assessment in the future.

This website does a great job with breaking down the differences between formative and summative assessment.

Kenny Evans's curator insight, April 13, 2014 9:13 PM

This is a helpful chart to help distinguish the difference between summative and formative assessment. I will keep this handy for when I'm deciding if my assessment is one of the two.

RubiStar Home

Greg Mohlke's insight:

I read online reviews about rubric generators and this one seemed the best with lots of free content and a search tool to look for pre-made rubrics. This website will help save time by not having to use Microsoft Word so much and worrying about formatting issues, etc...

Classroom Assessment Technique: Concept Maps - YouTube

Share your videos with friends, family, and the world
Greg Mohlke's insight:

This is another idea I came across while looking up assessment strategies. The video uses mind-mapping for older students but I think it could easily be adapted for use in the elementary classroom. By having the entire class contribute ideas to the map I can see which concepts they need more help with and adjust my teaching to meet that.

EasyBib: The Free Automatic Bibliography Composer

EasyBib: The Free Automatic Bibliography Composer | Assessment Resources | Scoop.it
Automatic works cited and bibliography formatting for MLA, APA and Chicago/Turabian citation styles. Now supports 7th edition of MLA.
Greg Mohlke's insight:

Colleges and universities are placing lots of emphasis on academic integrity now that technology has made it easier and easier to pass off someone else's work as your own. Because I am going to be in a fourth grade classroom in the fall, I am going to introduce this website to my students when they write research papers. I believe that fourth-grade is an appropriate age to introduce the concept of citation. I still use this site when I cite sources and it's completely free.

Classroom Management Strategies - TeacherVision.com

Classroom Management Strategies - TeacherVision.com | Assessment Resources | Scoop.it
Get instant ideas on how to manage your toughest behavior challenges. These strategies will help you improve behavior management in your classroom.
Greg Mohlke's insight:

I like this website because it organizes strategies based on the specific problems you are having with children. For example, there are ideas about demanding students, lack of respect, the class clown, and attention seeking students. The fact that these ideas come from other teachers add credibility to that. The only downside to this site is that is a paid subscription source.
