Summative Testing

Summative testing generally refers to a test or quiz that is to be incorporated into a student’s grade.  Like formative testing, most of our assessment tools can be used for both formative and summative purposes.  The key difference is not in the tool, but in how the tool is used – i.e., for practice or for a grade.
