In this assignment, you will compare and contrast assessment and evaluation. You must complete the following:
Give an example, from classroom or online applications other than this course, of assessment, then compare and contrast that with an example of evaluation. Discuss the defining characteristics of each type, assessment and evaluation, and ways in which teachers and trainers use each one in instructional design and delivery.
Give examples of formative and summative assessment and discuss similarities and differences. Discuss the purposes of each type of assessment, during the instructional design process and during the delivery process.
Using examples, discuss similarities and differences between formative evaluation and summative evaluation. Discuss the purposes of each, and how teachers and trainers use them in practical settings. How are these two types used in the instructional design process? How are they used, and what issues can they help the instructor avoid or resolve during the delivery process? Provide examples to illustrate.
Use peer-reviewed academic sources to support your thoughts and ideas. Do not just give answers from the sources. To demonstrate your understanding, answer the questions in your own words and using sources as backup to justify your ideas. The paper must be completed in APA manuscript format.
Assessment and evaluation are two terms that are often confused to have the same meaning. However, they are two different words with different meanings. While assessment is conducted to provide essential feedback for improving learning, evaluation is conducted to judge learning outcomes. There are two types of assessment; formative and summative. Formative assessment is given on a continuous basis to improve class learning. Summative assessment is given periodically to determine the success of a program. Similarly, there are two types of evaluation. Formative evaluation which involves giving several evaluations during process implementation to detect problems that can affect the implementation process. Summative evaluation is conducted after the completion of a program to determine its effectiveness and guide decision whether to continue with it. Assessment enhances student learning while evaluation seeks to judge students or instructors.
