Assessment in Science and Beyond

My students and I had a very interesting discussion in class today. As they are working on science unit planning, they are asked to submit an assignment where they focus on how they will assess student learning. We discuss three kinds of assessment with them – Assessment FOR Learning (formative assessment done by the teacher), Assessment AS Learning (formative assessment) done by students themselves, and Assessment FOR Learning – summative assessment. As we have been discussing it, it became clear that there the same assessment in different context can serve a different purpose, yet the Ministry of Education places different types of assessment under different categories. For example, you can use clickers as Assessment FOR learning or as Assessment AS learning. It all depends how you using this technology. I am wondering if this assessment discussion will make the students think different about the assessment they use with their students.
