If used effectively it can improve the student performance tremendously while raising the self esteem of the child. The main features of the Assessment is that it is diagnostic and remedial, provides effective feedback to the students, allows for the active involvement of students in their own learning, enables teachers to adjust teaching to takeaccount of the results of assessment and recognize the profound influence that assessment has on the motivation and self esteem of students, both of which are crucial influences in learning.
Assessments are not limited to a paper-pencil test. Other means of testing such as quizzes, conversations, oral testing, visual testing, projects, practical activities and assignments are also employed.
Assessments done periodically will be shown to the students/parents so as to encourage continuous participatory improvement.
