Summative Assessments

This collection features resources to assist teachers with summative assessment.  A variety of tools are provided to assist teachers in developing summative assessments.  Please note that students must be involved in the assessment process from the very beginning.  The learning outcome and goals should be shared, along with the success criteria so that students know exactly what is expected of them along the journey.  

Summative assessment is assessment OF learning.  Teachers gather information about a student's learning and make judgements about the quality using success criteria.  It is important that students are also involved in this process and that they engage in active reflection about their learning.

Educational Scavenger Hunts for the 21st Century!

This app helps you facilitate scavenger hunts, where teams of students compete to find items you assign (in the physical world), then take photo evidence at each point and post it on the app. The app then keeps track of team points so you know which team won by the end.

This tool could be used for teams to complete assessments, or to provide feedback and capture an snapshot of their current level of understanding of the material. Students could also CREATE these for summative assessments to share with their peers if centered around a topic of study in the classroom.
