Formative or summative math assessment - What's the difference?

Formative assessments in math

Online assessment tools for math are usually either formative or summative (or both) for shaping ongoing lessons and grading final examinations. 

Formative assessments in math are tests given during a course or semester to measure the students' current level of knowledge to gauge and guide (or form) the learning process. This goes both ways as teachers can use the results of the tests in their formative assessment tools for math to guide their lesson plans and lectures. In addition, formative assessment tests give valuable insight into how effectively the students learn from the provided material.

 

Summative assessments in math

Summative assessments are the final tests given at the end of a course, project, semester, program, or school year.

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. 

The challenges of math assessments in a remote setting

The pandemic made an irreversible change in the everyday existence of all people, especially for those involved in the education system, including both students and teachers. Remote learning quickly gave rise to a range of problems in the mechanism of providing proper education. Investments in quick-fix online solutions enforced by the pandemic caused real frustration throughout the complete lifecycle of the exams for all stakeholders involved. It left educators and companies with a system of dysfunctional learning tools, adoption challenges, time-consuming administration, and questionable exam integrity:

  • Academic dishonesty: One of the most prevalent challenges institutions face is academic dishonesty - cheating. Preventing students from accessing other resources than the ones determined by the exam conditions (such as websites, books, notes, chat, etc.) becomes much more complex in a remote setting with remote proctoring

  • Technology requirements: The future is digital; however, studies have shown that students are generally more likely to experience issues with an exam if it's written online. The online assessment tool you use must be intuitive enough to allow anyone to partake in the exam regardless of their technical skills without encountering any significant issues.

  • Internet connectivity: The unreliability of the internet is an ever-present issue, especially in rural and remote areas. Online math examinations can prove a big challenge for a smooth and reliable examination process unless the proper tools are deployed.
