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.

Grade 3 Sample Math Assessments from the Ministry of Education

Sample Math Outcome Questions: An Assessment Resource for Teachers.

The resource Sample Math Outcome Questions: An Assessment Resource for Teachers:

• provides possible questions, sample responses and rubrics for classroom instruction and assessment.
• is not mandatory.
• was created to support the teaching and learning of mathematics.
• can be adapted by teachers to meet the individual needs of their students.
• can be used before, during and/or after classroom instruction as formative or summative assessment(s).
• is designed to elicit responses that inform teachers’ understanding of the skills and concepts that students need to know, understand and are able to do.

This resource primarily assesses students using written response. Indicators that include terms such as research or collect data (for example) are ideally assessed by means other than a written response. Subsequently, teachers must keep in mind that using this resource provides only one of many forms of evidence that teachers collect to report on student achievement of the outcome.

Each sample includes the outcome, indicators, sample assessment and answer key.

Making Sense of Learning Pathways
Rating

Thinking of students on different pathways to learning can help us better understand Personalized Learning.
Implementing learning pathways can help teachers to "adapt to each student’s learning progress, motivation and goals".

In the example given (and there are many more versions you could use!) Students are on 3 pathways. All pathways get small group instruction!

Pathway 1 - these are the students that are usually ahead. They skip over some things and get into the deeper work.
Pathway 2 - the "core" track for students working at level.
Pathway 3 - these students may have gaps or work more slowly. They don't get MORE work, but work at their level. They will likely get more small group instruction than the other paths.

Formative assessment is used on all pathways to improve instruction and learning.

*students can move between pathways if desired or necessary!
