Innovative Assessment for Learning Enhancement: Issues and Practices
Zacharis, Nick Z.
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v3 n1 p61-70 Jan 2010
Although summative assessment is indispensable for determining whether or not students meet the content standards, it alone is insufficient for providing teachers and administrators with the information necessary to make ongoing decisions about instruction. This article looks at the motivational impact of the assessment on students' achievement and concentrates on methods of formative assessment that considered being innovative, such as assessment by objective tests, small group assessment, peer- and self-assessment.
