Types of Assessment

Formative Assessment: Using daily tools to monitor student ongoing progress

Summative Assessment: Using a tool at the end of a unit or year to determine a student's level at the conclusion

Standardized Assessment: A tool that has gone through a battery of tests to be found to have reliable and valid norms and/or criteria based on age or levels. This form of assessment (combined with non-standardized tools) is required for determining student eligibility for special education services (including adapted physical education services).

Non-standardized Assessment: Tools designed to inform a student's ability level, growth over time, or monitor practice using informal methods such as (but not limited to): observation, checklists, rubrics, collaboration, video recording, tally marks, anecdotal notes, worksheets, exams, homework, teacher/student or peer discussion, group cooperative work, student presentation, teacher-made forms.

*These are used to support standardized assessments and are considered multi-confirming data for the eligibility process of determining special education services (including adapted physical education)

Pre-Assessment: Using a tool prior to teaching and practice of skills in order to determine a baseline for the student's current ability level

Post-Assessment: Using a tool after providing instruction and practice opportunities in order to determine the student's level of progress when compared to the pre-assessment
