formative - assessment for learning which informs planning...

summative - assessment of learning at a point in time...

'The eyfs profile is a summative assessment which is a statutory requirement at the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage...'

'Ongoing formative assessment based on and adapting to observations helps children to learn'.

I just read it in 'Supporting every child's learning across the eyfs' pg 34, Vicky Hutchin, (2007) Hodder Murray if you want to quote it. :reading:

You'd think this far into an OU course I'd be able to do references better than that! Sorry! :blush:

I came across another reference for these made by another forum's member..
Quote:
tassoni, bulman, beith & robinson "children's care learning & development" 2005 p 383
As mentioned Formative 'informs and builds up to enable the summative to be made .. an example would be like keeping a washing up diary for a fortnight and then surmising I (definitely) need a dish washer

Whether or not I save up to get one would then become part of the planning (& new formative assessment) of how I get one !!

There are lots of things that can come under formative assessment - play plans, photographs, observations, Minutes that might be taken down at meetings, diaries, home communications, interactions, parent observations & feedback .. Summative can include statement & decision making formats such as - evaluations, profiles, policies, procedures, anything that has a summary or facility for a conclusion, I would imagine a reflective approach is ideal for summative ..

There are a couple of other threads discussing Formative & summative here:
