Introduction to Different Types of Assessments and Question Formats

 

Teachers often wonder if students are grasping concepts effectively. Tests serve as tools for teachers to gauge understanding, revealing what and how well students have learned, along with areas of difficulty. However, tests are just one facet of assessments. Teachers must recognize various assessment types, which, when employed thoughtfully, offer valuable insights for students, teachers, and policymakers. These assessments play a crucial role in education, aiding preparation for students' encounters with diverse evaluation methods throughout their academic journey.

 

Types of Assessments:

 


 

Assessments at Different Stages of Instruction:

 

Learning, in typical academic settings, is a continuous cycle. Assessments can be used at different stages in this cycle. Assessments that are conducted before the instruction starts are called diagnostic assessments. Assessments that are conducted during the instruction period are formative assessments and those that are conducted after are known as summative assessments. There are also specifically designed assessments to evaluate the impact of special learning intervention programs. These are called impact assessments.

 

Assessments Based on Reporting Methods:

 

Assessments can differ from each other depending on the method they use to report the results. There are two widely used reporting methods - norm-referenced and criterion-referenced. Let us take a brief look at these two methods of reporting assessment results.

 

Types of Question Format:

 


 

Assessments Based on Method of Conduction:

 

assessments categorised based on when it takes place in the different stages of instruction, the reporting method and the type of questions used. We will now look at one more category of assessments and the category is the method in which an assessment is conducted. Under this category, there are standardized assessments that are conducted in a formal setting with standardized practices, and there are non-standardized assessments which are conducted in an informal setting in an individualised manner.

 

In conclusion, assessments are essential tools in education for measuring learning outcomes. The choice of assessment type and question format depends on the learning goals, the level of understanding being evaluated, and the resources available for grading. Balancing different assessment methods can provide a comprehensive view of students' knowledge and skills.
