Chossing assessment activities

Assessment mean collecting information about learners performace, progress or attitudes in order to make judments about their learning.

We need to think first about reasons for assessing.

The assessment could be informal (by monitoring or observing) or formal (by tests or examinations).

Examinations' purpose could be a proficiency test, to assess overall language ability, achievement test, to assess learning at the end of a course, or a progress test, to assess learning at the end of part of a course.
