    • Assessment is another fundamental aspect of teaching.
    • Assessment can help you determine a student's proficiency in a language. 
    • Using assessment can help to identify the strengths and weaknesses a learner has. 
    • Teachers also need to use constant assessment to determine how well students are comprehending the material that has been covered or how much information they picked up from a specific course.
    • Assessment and evaluation are not the same yet they are closely related.
    • Assessment relates to individual student learning. It is “the act of collecting information and making judgments on a language learner’s knowledge of language and ability to use it” (Chapelle and Brindley, 2002, p.267).
    • Evaluation refers to a broader term concerning a collection and interpretation of information relating to the value of an entire course or program for the reach of specific functions or goals.
    • Reasons to assess:
    • Diagnosing students strengths and weaknesses.
    • Deciding what to and what not to teach next.
    • Giving students feedback.
    • Seeing students progress.
    • Handing students a final grade.
    • Formative assessment and Summative assessment
    • Formative assessment occurs anytime during the course of teaching, when it is intended or necessary with the purpose of improving the learner’s outcome. Formative assessment is usually informal.
    • Summative assessment happens at the end of a teaching process and is carried out in order to judge what students have achieved during the course. Summative assessment is often formally designed and administered.
