0% - Formative - Minor
- Formative assessments are short, frequent, assess progress toward one or two standards, and occur concurrently with or just after instruction (ex.: class discussion, quiz, homework, exit ticket, etc.). Because the primary purpose is to inform instruction (for teacher, student, and parent), these do not count toward the final average.
- Checkpoint assessments still function as formative assessments but are less frequent and may include tasks or items that include more complex ideas or processes. They occur after instruction of the assessed standards has occurred but prior to a summative assessment (ex.: quiz, short essay or presentation, etc.).
- Summative assessments occur at the end of a unit (or subunit), assess progress toward several standards, and require students to make inferences or applications (ex.: test, project, formal presentation, etc.).
