CPTE Assessment
1. Differentiate formal and informal assessments (give examples)
a. Formal assessments are the systematic, pre-planned data-based tests that measure what
and how well the students have learned. Formal assessments determine the students’
proficiency or mastery of the content, and can be used for comparisons against certain

i. standardized tests
ii. criterion referenced tests
iii. norm referenced test
iv. achievement tests
v. aptitude tests

b. Informal assessments are those spontaneous forms of assessment that can easily be
incorporated in the day-to-day classroom activities and that measure the students’
performance and progress. Informal assessments are content and performance driven.

i. checklist
ii. observation
iii. portfolio
iv. rating scale
v. time sampling
vi. event sampling
vii. anecdotal record

c. Formal Assessments VS Informal Assessments

i. Formal Assessment is structured while the Informal is flexible.
ii. Formal Assessment is static while the Informal is dynamic.
iii. Formal Assessment is standardized while the Informal is individualized.
iv. Formal Assessment is episodic while the Informal is continuous.
v. Formal Assessment is product-based while the Informal is process-based.
vi. Formal Assessment is knowledge testing while the Informal is progress

2. Why is assessment is important?

a. For me assessment is the most important part of learning because here we can see if the
teaching and learning is effective between the learner and the teacher. The result of the
assessment is both reflects on the learner and teachers performance. This is also helps the
teacher to improve his teaching skills and helps the learners to improve his learning
3. Discuss authentic assessment? (give examples)
a. is one that requires application of what students have learned to a new situation, and that
demands judgment to determine what information and skills are relevant and how they
should be used. Authentic assignments often focus on messy, complex real-world
situations and their accompanying constraints; they can involve a real-world audience of
stakeholders or “clients” as well. According to Grant Wiggins (1998), an assignment is
authentic if it
i. is realistic.
ii. requires judgment and innovation.
iii. asks the student to “do” the subject.
iv. replicates or simulates the contexts in which adults are “tested” in the workplace or in
civic or personal life.
v. assesses the student’s ability to efficiently and effectively use a repertoire of
knowledge and skills to negotiate a complex task.
vi. allows appropriate opportunities to rehearse, practice, consult resources, and get
feedback on and refine performances and products.
