Assessment of Learning

Assessment plays a significant role when we talk about learning and motivation. Assessment of Learning is a cyclic process that helps students(learners) and teachers (teaching). The data or information stored in it assists the teacher to teach students so that they get actively engaged in the whole process of studying with the knowledge of various strategies to maximize their progress at each level in the classroom. AFL (Assessment of Learning) also helps teachers to determine whether their teaching leads to the learning or needs more input from their side.
