FREEBIE! Strategies to summatively assess student learning! Focus on Student Learning is a series of teaching resources created to support teachers and save them time. Each booklet within the series takes one aspect of instruction and suggests multiple ways of using that instruction practice in the classroom. Book Three: Summative Assessment - 50 Ways to Gather Evidence of Student Learning provides teachers with ideas of evidence they can collect.
Summative vs. Formative Assessments What’s the difference, anyway? Some like to think of the two as helping one another out – the formative assessments check progress along the way, while the summative assessment serves sort of as the ‘end survey’.

PTO 6: This is a slideshow of formative and summative assessments. This gives the definitions of each and examples of how to do each assessment. It explains the teacher's role and the student's role in assessment. This is good to learn how to use multiple types of assessments to meet the needs of your learners.
