Training and Training Environments

Just need your input with these 2 DQs.

1. You are a trainer delivering a course on teamwork. What is one example of a formative assessment and one example of a summative assessment that may be used in the training session?

"Assessments of learning outcomes are often what some people call summative assessments: the kind obtained at the end of a course or program (Suskie & Banta, 2009)."

"An assessment of learning processes is what some call formative assessments: those undertaken while student learning is taking place rather than at the end of a course or program. Because formative assessments are done midstream, faculty and staff can use them to improve the learning of current students by making immediate changes to classroom activities and assignments and by giving students prompt feedback on their strengths and weakness (Suskie & Banta, 2009)."
