Assessment is carried out for promotion, placement and research. Assessment can be Summative, Formative and Diagnostic.
I learn about 'Assessment of Learning', 'Assessment for Learning' and 'Assessment as Learning'. Our group's first assignment - 'e-learning Initiatives in Singapore Education System 1997 - 2010' is an example of 'Assessment as Learning'. We learn as we do the assignment.
I also learn about the term 'validity'.
