Using summative and formative assessment to promote learning

Formative and summative assessment are central components of university teaching that is effective for learning. However, in order for assessment methods to unfold their potential to promote learning, they must be meaningfully integrated into the didactic design of the course and also be utilized by the teachers and students. For teachers, this raises questions such as:

  • What does “assessment conducive to learning” mean?
  • When, how often, how and why should which assessment methods be used?
  • How can assessment be used constructively by teachers and students?

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand current research findings on the effectiveness of assessment and feedback
  • Understand quality characteristics, forms and timing of assessment that promote learning (e.g. competence orientation, constructive alignment)
  • Name different online and face-to-face assessment methods and reflectively weigh up their possible uses in (your own) teaching (e.g. classroom assessment techniques)
  • Develop and present an “assessment strategy” for your own course(s), taking into account formative and summative elements.
