The difference between formative and summative assessment in Grade 12 Life Orientation

School-based assessment tasks can be used for formative as well as summative purposes.

Summative assessment

Refers to more formal planned assessments at the end of a unit or term / year which are used primarily to assess learners’ progress.

Formative assessment

Is usually more informal and more frequent, involving the gathering of information about learners and their learning needs while they are still learning.

Formative assessment has two key functions: informing and forming.

Formative assessment shapes the decisions about what to do next, by helping the teacher to select what to teach in the next lesson, or even in the next moment in the lesson and the learners to understand what they have learnt and what they need to learn next.
