Types of online assessments for teachers

Schools, colleges, and other educational institutions can opt for different types of assessments. Different types of online assessments for teachers differ based on more than one element and include various components to test students’ skills at different times. Teachers may use one or all depending on their needs. Some of the more common online assessments for teachers include:


1. Diagnostic assessments (Pre-assessment) are performed before beginning a course, program, or semester. It is used to assess the students’ previous knowledge to understand their basics and exposure to the topic.

2. Formative assessments take place midway through a course, program, or semester to assess the students’ current level of knowledge to gauge and guide (or form) the learning process. Formative assessment tests give valuable insights into how effectively the students learn from the provided material.

3. Interim assessments are administered periodically during the duration of the complete course, program, or semester. Interim assessment generally falls somewhere between formative and summative assessment. Its purposes are to evaluate where the students are in their learning process and to determine whether they are on track or not to perform well on future assessments and examinations.

4. Summative assessments are the final tests given to students at the end of a course, program, or semester. They measure the students’ learning and reaction to what has been taught during the course or semester. Summative assessments are usually high-stakes exams with a high point value that weigh heavily on a student’s grades.
