·       Assessments FOR learning: an evaluation tool used to guide and monitor the progress of student learning during instruction. Its purpose is to provide continuous feedback to both the student and the teacher concerning learning successes and progress toward mastery. 

·       Assessments OF learning: an evaluation tool generally used at the end of an assignment, unit, project, or chapter. These types of assessments are more formal kinds of assessments (e.g., unit tests, final exams, projects, reports, and presentations) and are typically used to evaluate student mastery of intended learning outcomes.
