A good visual featuring 6 assessment types
Assessments are a key component of all education systems and play
a critical role in a student's learning journey. By measuring student
achievement and skill mastery, assessments help students learn,
teachers improve instruction, administrators decide how to allocate
resources, and policy makers evaluate the efficacy of education programs.
There are 6 types of assessments: diagnostic, formative, summative,
norm-referenced, criterion-referenced, and finally interim/ benchmark.
