Assessment is an ongoing process and is used to inform decisions teachers make regarding student progress. It is integral to the planning, teaching and learning cycle, and is the responsibility of both teachers and students.
Student assessment is a continual process which develops a comprehensive, individual profile of each learner over time. A variety of techniques are used which cater for the individual learning needs, styles and tasks required of each student. These techniques may include: teacher observation, student/teacher consultation, criteria checklists, written tasks and tests, and peer and self-assessment.
