Assessment happens at the end of a unit right?
Summative assessment practice may have us thinking that we can’t really measure our students progress until they sit that test, write that final piece for the exam or finish their coursework. Alternatively, formative assessment might be a great way to check in now and then, but is it really a useful piece of data that I can use to measure impact?
