Formative assessment is an evaluation tool to decide areas of strengths and weaknesses in understanding the content delivered. This form of evaluation, called “assessment FOR learning,” will not be used in their final grade. Formative practice questions are assigned at the end of each concept, where students are asked to keep their work in their notebooks.
Summative assessment is an evaluation practice that allows the students to show their understanding of the learning. We call this an “assessment OF learning.” All efforts are made in this course to enable the students to succeed. Thus, these assignments are given opportunities for their comprehension of the material. There are summative quizzes throughout the course (minor assessments), and a unit exam at the end of each unit.
The course references a textbook. You will be provided step-by-step instructions on how to access this electronic textbook called Pre-Calculus 11.
