Assessment is more than just an examination. There are many new and innovative ways of assessing using new technology as well using more traditional coursework, observations and tests.
What is Assessment?
Assessment is used all the time in the everyday process of making decisions; however the assessments we apply are extremely high stakes because they affect the futures of individuals and they play a critical role in the process of learning.
People's lives around the world are shaped by the outcomes of the assessment they receive as part of their education process. Assessment is the key to identifying and measuring educational achievement.
Research and evaluation plays a vital role in continually measuring and monitoring the reliability and validity of the assessments created and delivered by the three exam boards that form Cambridge Assessment.
