ASSESSING YOUR STUDENTS OR EVALUATING THEM?

Do you really know the difference between evaluating and assessing?

They are two different contents, and I have seen teachers using them randomly. But they are not in fact quite the same. And it is important to know the difference in order to use them appropriatelly.

Let’s see the difference:

Assessment: In this, you will be required to determine how well your students are learning, gauge their performance, and measure the appropriateness of the content and the effectiveness of the methods and techniques utilized in your classroom.

Evaluation is intrinsically more complex than writing a test, giving it to a group of students, scoring it, and handing it back with some sort of letter grade. Indeed, it involves a combination of procedures and designs that not only gauge students’ work but also help them grow in the process.

When you assess your individual students, you gather information about their level of performance or achievement. Evaluation is comparing a student’s achievement with other students or with a set of standards.
