Your Date with Slate - Stepping Stones Summative Assessment
View email in your browser
Hi <<First Name>>,
 
Welcome to our third date on Stepping Stones assessment. We hope you've been gaining valuable information on how to conduct this important aspect of the program. On today's date we'll explore Summative Assessment.
 
Access Summative Assessment by following the pathway shown in the image below.
 

Summative Assessment generally takes place at planned intervals after instruction. It is used to sum up what students know. Then, using data generated by these assessments, teachers are able to assign grades or percentages for student performance. Ideally, Summative Assessment also serves a formative role to modify future instruction. 
 
Stepping Stones provides three different options for Summative Assessment.

Check-Ups: questions that require the student to select the correct answer or to provide a short written response.

Performance Tasks: used to measure depth of understanding in Grades 1-5; a scoring rubric accompanies each task.

Interviews: certain concepts and skills, such as the ability to rote count fluently, are best assessed by interviewing students.
Next week we'll discuss Recording in more detail.

We always love hearing from you. If you have any feedback about our programs, please submit via the send feedback button under the support tab within Slate.
