Assessments are important to the teaching and learning process. They empower educators to make the right decisions for students.

Formative assessments are used to modify a teacher’s instruction. Some are formal tests like chapter tests while others are more spontaneous such as when a teacher checks for understanding during instruction.

Summative assessments show if  learning has been retained and can be applied. They also demonstrate if students have an overall mastery of grade level expectations.

All assessments help students know how they learn and what they have mastered. The most important outcome of tests is feedback and perspective.
