EVALUATION AND ASSESSMENT METHODS IN PRIMARY & SECONDARY EDUCATION

Rating: 0/5

Assessment and evaluation play an important role in the teaching-learning process. They provide feedback to teachers on their teaching and students on their learning. Evaluation is an ongoing process while assessment provides accountability to schools, parents and education systems. They contribute to the formation of goals, the design of learning experiences and document student performance. Assessment and evaluation provide valuable feedback on curriculum design and implementation, thus improving teaching and curriculum.
