assessment for learning

The assignment that you ask your learners to complete is not same as a practice worksheet.

A good assignment in any subject at any level should take into consideration the following points.

1. An assignment should have a well defined objective.

When we talk to a teacher about Continuous Comprehensive Assessment (CCA) and ask them how they are doing it in their school then they almost always equate assessment with periodic examinations. The very word 'assessment' needs a careful handling of it, particularly the purpose of doing it. The important aspect being who is doing it and what is the intended outcome of such assessment. Assessment can mean how better a child learns (sharing the child's learning with her parents is the intended outcome).

There might have been instances in your life where you were asked to reflect and evaluate your own capabilities and you would have either taken a while before responding or penned down unsure words about your own self! It is rather surprising that for most of us, this capacity of self – reflection or evaluation doesn’t come so naturally.
Assessment plays the very vital role in school life of a child. It is the process for determining whether a child has a disability and needs special education and related services. It’s the first step in developing an educational program that will help the child learn. A full and individual initial assessment must be done before the initial provision of any special education or related services to a child with a disability, and students must be reevaluated at least once every three years.
