Assessment is how we show evidence that learning has occurred. Using two of the three main types of assessment, formative and summative, we can recognise using certain marking tools how our students have improved, where they are lacking and what to do to improve in weaker areas, and ultimately to demonstrate learning has taken place through either written, practical or both types of examinations.
