May be is it that somehow the internal IMPERFECTION is being brought out unknowingly. This doubt is genuine looking at the events in society. Have a look at these examples: efil fo noitomorp htiw delpuoc slliks -leved no sisahpme ,evitingoC fo tnempo -ysP dna evitceffA sniamod rotomohc a fo epoh nevig sah -nI ni erutuf retteb yteicos naid • INSIDE THIS ISSUE: 1 Assessment, Evaluation 1 • The asking rate for post graduation in medicine is rumored to be exorbitant, then can people afford specialized treatment? • Even educated food grain traders do not know the thin line between buy-sell and hoarding “Education is External Manifestation of Perfection that is already present inside the man” • Paradigm Shift to a normal day Where are we Heading to? • Some of the most intelligent children after entering IITs commit suicides, unfortunately A company declares and works towards profit maximization (at any cost?)

Assessment, Evaluation Educators help students to build lifelong learning skills through assessment and evaluation. Assessment provides feedback on knowledge , skills and attitudes and work products for the purpose of elevating future performances and learning out- comes. Evaluation determines the level of quality of a performance or outcome and enables decision-making based on the level of quality demonstrated. These two processes are complementary and necessary in education. (Marie Baehr)* Assessment is wider in scope than Examination. The purpose of assessment is to find out the existing status against the expected status. So examination is a tool for assessment. It helps to identify learning gaps * This small newsletter is an effort to understand and disseminate the ideas on Indian Education
