Assessments are closely related to observation. It is imperative for each teacher that along with her other skills, she learns to train her eye so that she has the practiced skill of a doctor. This observation is kept purely scientific. It is also known as phenomenological observation where one observes facts without mixing it up with opinion, feelings, previous knowledge, concepts etc. Observing how a child walks, talks, holds a pencil, picks up a fruit to eat, the size of his head, the structure of his body builds a picture of the child and gives you a story, far more important and accurate than any assessment will do.
