Formative and Summative Activities and Assessments

Formative activities and assignments provide practice and feedback as you work through the course. Formative activities are tagged against learning objectives, which appear on the page.

Summative assessments (Checkpoints and Quizzes) are assignments that assess mastery of material. The My Scores page lists your scores on these assignments.
