In recent years there has been a growing concern in improving the quality of education and there is a shift towards considering assessment as a means of improving learning. Assessment is an effective tool for a teacher to know about her/ his children. Properly developed and interpreted, assessment brings clarity on several aspects of the course such as: help in giving correct feedback about a child’s learning or achievement. It clears the path to improved learning by providing information about the learning gap and gives information on the teaching learning process. The more information we collect about a child the more clarity it brings about his/her learning and learning difficulties.
