ACPSD Assessment Information
There are three primary types of assessments—formative, interim and summative assessments. Formative assessments are designed to inform teachers of student skill and content knowledge throughout the course of an academic year. These assessments inform teachers, allowing them to adjust their content delivery and/or utilize curriculum supports in order to meet the individual needs of their students. Summative assessments test skill-mastery and/or knowledge at the end of a course or year, or at a designated midpoint. Interim Assessments are just that--administered on an interim basis in the fall, winter and spring.
