A guide for faculty about student assessment

"...a summative assessment should fulfil its primary purpose of documenting what students know and can do but, if carefully crafted, should also successfully meet a secondary purpose of support for learning." 
Bennett, R.E. (2011). Formative assessment: A critical review. Assessment in Education: Principles, Policy & Practice, 18 (1), 7.
