2.2. Activity 2 1. This is because learners progress differently as they are assessed on their achievement of mathematical knowledge. This achievement will be facilitated by ongoing – formative – feedback, which can be given if assessment is carried out on a continuous basis, using a variety of methods. Learners should be given several opportunities to show that they are progressing in the achievement of the mathematical knowledge (specific concepts and specific skills). Continuous assessment gives you the opportunity to vary the kind of assessment you are using because you assess the learners a number of times and in different ways. The results of all these ways can be used in the final (summative) assessment of learners’ achievement. Hence, continuous assessment embraces all four of the purposes of assessment described above – baseline, diagnostic, formative and summative. 2. No. 3. Yes. SECTION B 1. (Unit 6) 1.1 Exercise 1 1.
