Assessment in EYP is merely a guide to the teaching done and to assess the growth of the child in terms of skills.
Formative Assessment: This is part of the daily learning and helps teachers and students find out what the students already know in order to plan the next stage of learning. Formative assessment and teaching are linked; neither can function effectively or purposefully without the other.
Summative Assessment: This assessment is held at the end of the teaching and learning process ideally at the end of an Inquiry Unit. It gives the students opportunities to demonstrate what they have learned. The EYP maintains all individual portfolios of students’ achievement as an important evidence for documenting.
