Module 3C. Traditional and Alternative Assessments
“Hello classmates! Could you please enlighten me a bit between Formative and Alternative Assessments. I am quite confused. Are they similar or different at all?”

Another one, needing clarification, and I’m happy to help.
Simply put, if alternative assessments (non-traditional) are used to guide and improve instruction and learning, then they are formative.
Alternative assessment can be used in a formative way (informs instruction and learning) or in a summative way (certifies learning).
