Receiving feedback as a student-be it formative or summative-is a necessary part of learning. We strive for information on how we are doing and what we can do to develop. Higher education courses usually come to an end and we receive a final grade. This is the sum of all of our work all through the course. As a student, do you prefer formative evaluation or summative assessment? What do you personally think are the merits and demerits to each? Describe in depth your thoughts and also the formal definitions of each form.
