Summative Assessment

Summative assessment evaluates student learning at the end of an instructional period, such as a course or unit. It measures the extent to which learning objectives have been achieved and provides a final evaluation of student performance. Examples of summative assessments include final exams, end-of-term projects, and standardized tests. Summative assessments are used for grading, certification, and program evaluation. They provide a comprehensive overview of student learning and help educators make decisions about future instruction and curriculum development.
