Choosing the appropriate type of assessment is important. Choose the assessment based upon the need. For example, use a diagnostic assessment when you need to obtain knowledge about a student's skills, misconceptions, or prior knowlege knowledge before beginning a learning activity. Use ongoing, formative assessments throughout the learning activity to measure growth, determine what the student has mastered and what still needs work. Use a summative assessment at a specific point in time to measure competency.
