Daily assessments motivate students to work hard on the given challenges and also encourage them to think and analyze about the given concepts so that they can solve their queries on their own. It also helps to develop their identities as capable learners.

Classroom Assessments Enhance Learning


鈥 Teachers find out what the students know, what they partly know and what they do not know so that the future follow-on activities can advance their learning skills.

鈥 AFL (Assessment for learning) is very useful for students who find difficulty in understanding the topic, it refocuses their attitude towards assessment as something that can help them learn rather highlighting their in-competencies.

鈥 AFL is equally beneficial for intelligent students as it offers them a more challenging curriculum that mainly focuses on their progress rather than to meet their targets.


Thus, assessments in a classroom are important, and with different kinds of assessments a teacher is able to evaluate the students effectively.
