My professional growth through this blog has been extraordinary! When I started this blog and the CEP 813 course in September, I would have rated myself at a novice level on assessments.

I thought to myself…”How did I miss this in my college training?” Maybe we used different terms? Formative Assessment would be my “Check for Understanding” in the lesson plan. Summative Assessment would be the end of the unit exam or the final exam. Now the depth of my knowledge of how to use assessment in teaching is at proficient.
