However, valid assessment could be facilitated by using a more comprehensive framework of validity when validating the rubric; (3) rubrics seem to have the potential of promoting learning and/or improve instruction.
The main reason for this potential lies in the fact that rubrics make expectations and criteria explicit, which also facilitates feedback and self-assessment.
Testing may validate a number of objective and subjective characteristics, including task completion, time on task, error rates, and user satisfaction.
The main purpose of a summative test is to evaluate a product through defined measures, rather than diagnosis and correction of specific design problems, as in formative evaluation.
