When you study at ACAP, you will be required to successfully complete a range of assessment tasks. Typically these are ‘formative’ and ‘summative’.
The formative assessment task is an assessment for learning that usually occurs at the beginning and during the sequence of teaching and learning. This type of task provides information on your progress in order to monitor teaching and learning outcomes.
The summative assessment tasks are the graded components of your unit. It is an assessment of learning that is used primarily at the completion of a sequence, such as at the end of each unit of work. Summative assessment tasks provide a comprehensive evaluation of all learning outcomes over a certain period.
