Infographic. The educational assessment landscape | Student Assessment | Scoop.it

Assessments are a key component of all education systems and play a critical role in a student's learning journey. By measuring student achievement and skill mastery, assessments help students learn, teachers improve instruction, administrators decide how to allocate resources, and policy makers evaluate the efficacy of education programs. According to The Educational Assessment Landscape, there are 6 types of assessments: diagnostic, formative, summative, norm-referenced, criterion-referenced, and finally interim/ benchmark. Read on to learn more each of these types.
