**you have to make changes on these  definitions and make necessary amendments be4 you print. Only two pages are needed for the assignment.

1. Definition of Evaluation.
Evaluation is the process of assessing and appraisal of students performance.

2. Type of evaluation:
We have four type of evaluation:
I. Diagnostic evaluation
II.Prognostic evaluation
III. Formative evaluation
III. Summative evaluation

3. Definition of summative evaluation:
Summative evaluation is the process of evaluating students’ performance at the end of the lesson or at the end of the term/Semester with the aim of planning for the next Level. Formative assessments are assessments that occur during lessons, while summative assessments are those that take place once the lessons have reached an end. Summative assessments are highly important, as they provide evaluators with arrays of useful information.

4. Five Major features of Summative Evaluation.

I. Authenticity
A test should examine real-world applications. For example, a math test            with equations alone is less effective than one with story problems or ways to associate the skill outside of the testing environment. It’s one thing for students to memorize a fact or answer; it’s another for them to comprehend the material in order for it to be helpful later in life.

II. Reliability
  Tests given as summative assessments should hold up in another setting, or with another set of students. In other words, the reliability of an assessment implies that it consistently produces similar results when given under similar conditions. Standardized tests are an example of assessment meant to be reliable in every setting.

 III. Volume
Educators should avoid the urge to over-test. Summative assessments should be used only when absolutely necessary to determine the level of learning that has been achieved. Too much volume leads to testing fatigue for both students and teachers and can inadvertently cause the quality of the testing to suffer.

IV. Validity
As closely as possible, testing needs to reflect the objectives taught in a certain period of time. Educators should already know learning goals before teaching a particular topic or in a certain time frame. Validity does not exclude valuable student-led discussions from teaching modules, but educators should test strictly on the aspired outcomes. It’s unfair to test students on information that was not addressed during a certain teaching episode.

 V. Variety
This factor has perhaps the largest impact on student success in summative assessment. Every student demonstrates his or her knowledge in a specific way, and giving a one- dimensional test can adversely affect individual learners. Testing should always include cognitive, psychomotor, and affective learning domains. These include group presentations, work portfolios, research papers, and timed pencil-to-paper testing.

5. Importance of summative evaluation;

 1. Summative assessments can serve as a guide to improve teaching methods. We all use different teaching methodology within the classroom. Summative assessments can help us collaborate and improve teaching methods from year to year.

2. Summative assessments help teachers and administrators alike, in improving curriculum and curriculum planning. Standards-driven instruction plays a large role in schools today. When summative assessments show consistent gaps between student knowledge and learning targets, schools may turn to improved curriculum planning or new curriculum to fill those learning gaps.
The data that is collected using a summative assessment can help teachers, schools, and districts make decisions based on the instruction that has already been complete. This contrasts formative assessment, as formative assessment can help teachers and students during the instruction process. It is important to understand the difference between the two, as both assessments, along with pre-assessment, can play an important role in education.

6. 8 points about how I can used summative evaluation in my school as VC GOMBE STATE UNIVERSITY AS AN ASSUMPTION.

Look at these points carefully and form your on points as Vc of that school.

Subject teachers and school managers can use the outcomes of summative assessment for a range of purposes, including:
• benchmarking;
• monitoring progress;
• target setting;
• placing pupils in subject classes; and helping pupils to make informed decisions about subject choices at post-primary.
• Evaluating Instruction
In some cases, summative assessments are used for the purposes of evaluating instructors. When students complete their coursework by taking a standardized summative assessment, administrators can use these evaluations to rank not just the pupils, but also the educators charged with teaching them. If one teacher’s class performs markedly worse on these assessments than another, administration may conclude that this teacher is not as effective as her colleague.
• Determining Mastery
The primary purpose of a summative evaluation is to ensure that individuals have mastered the skill in question. When students perform well on this assessment, teachers have proof that they do in fact know the taught material. Without this assessment, the teacher can only guess as to the level of student understanding.
• Ranking Skill
In academic settings, it is often necessary to rank student skill. Summative assessments provide an easy means by which to do this. By ranking students based upon their summative assessment scores, teachers can create a range of student skill, more effectively ranking students based upon ability for future lessons.
• Judging Program Value
These end-point assessments can also be used to determine the value of the program as a whole. If a program aims to prepare students for a specific test, such as a professional certification exam, the number of students who successfully pass this exam can be seen as evidence of the program’s success or failure.

 In the absence of summative evaluation, administrators and students have nothing toward which they are working. When summative evaluations are in place, teachers can craft lessons that build toward these ultimate assessments, allowing students to see that their efforts have an end point and giving them some motivation to continue to strive to understanding.
