Summative Evaluation in Reading.
Ediger, Marlow
Summative evaluation of student achievement in reading emphasizes determining learner progress at the end of a unit of study, end of course, or end of the school year. Generally, state mandated tests stress an end of the school year percentile which is to indicate the present state of learner achievement. This paper discusses and analyzes summative evaluation. It first focuses on multiple ways of reporting learner progress in reading, such as parent/teacher conferences, telephone calls, fax messages, brief letters, a class newsletter, or a web site listing what is being studied in reading. The paper goes on to suggest that teachers should think of multiple ways of reporting student progress in reading to parents and the larger community. It then considers summative evaluation and state mandated tests. Finally, the paper considers portfolios and summative evaluation. (NKA)
