Mid-Semester Assessment (PTS) is often also called Mid-Semester Summative (STS). This is an assessment that is often carried out at the primary and secondary education levels.
The purpose of STS itself is to assess the achievement of your little one’s learning goals, Mother. It can be said, STS is the basis for determining a child’s grade promotion or graduation.
This assessment will be carried out by comparing the achievement of student learning outcomes with the criteria for achieving learning objectives. Meanwhile, the summative assessment itself usually takes the form of a learning outcomes report which contains a report on learning achievements and can be supplemented with information on the child’s growth and development.

In the Independent Curriculum, teachers are expected to prioritize formative assessments or assessments which aim to monitor and improve the learning process. However, summative assessments are also still used to determine the achievement of learning objectives, Mother.
STS assessment techniques
There are several STS assessment techniques that teachers can choose to test children’s academics and development, Mother. Looking at the official website guru.kemendikbud.go.id, here we share the list:
The observation technique is an assessment carried out by observing children’s behavior periodically. The teacher will focus on observing students as a whole and individually. This technique can be used to assess tasks and activities that your little one routinely carries out while at school.
Performance techniques are assessments that require children to demonstrate and apply their knowledge in various contexts according to the desired criteria, Mother. For example, in the form of practice, creating a product, carrying out a project, or creating a portfolio.
Evaluation of teachers and teaching staff with this project technique is an activity where children get a task that covers various aspects. Starting from planning, implementation, and reporting, where the child must complete it within a certain time.
