An “unsystematized scramble” is where most start this process, so don’t fret!
If the goal is to use assessment to push learning forward, “summative” becomes a word you only use at the end of a grade or course.
Always remember, what students knew in the past is not very relevant for a summative mark now. It works both ways though – if they no longer understand the concept, does it make sense to give them a mark based on something they did 3 months ago?
It’s a big shift in thinking, but it’s great to see so many in this forum on the same journey with us!
