The formative assessment goal is to improve student learning and towards this end, on-going feedback from instructors would help motivate students (Race, 2014). Student strengths and weaknesses are identified. Target areas for improvement are identified. Moreover, positive feedbacks are given to student, and specific negative feedbacks are given. In addition to being a tool for improving student motivation, formative assessments help the faculty to work on identifying where students are struggling and where they would require additional motivation. Formative assessments in general are low stakes, but in connecting with the student and improving their overall motivation, it could be said that formative assessments are indeed better than summative. The summative assessments as applied to student learning are usually a final benchmark. It is the end grade of a course, or a university benchmark to identify course completion. Summative assessments are associated with high stakes and usually are associated to a midterm exam, a final project, a term end paper etc. Sometimes, a summative evaluation would be useful for students continuing studies in the same university, and here the summative evaluation becomes formative for their future coursework’s.
