An assessment to evaluate student learning, skill acquisition, and academic achievement at the conclusion of a defined instructional period—typically at the end of a project, unit, course, semester, program, or school year. It is also used to determine whether and to what degree students have learned the material they have been taught, as well as learning progress and achievement.
It is designed primarily as an assessment of learning. Because it judges the worth of the task by the end of program activities. And the main focus of summative evaluation is based on the outcome.
