The task of assessment during the course of studies is to guide and encourage studying and to depict how well the pupil has met the objectives established for growth and learning. It is the task of assessment to help the pupil form a realistic image of his or her learning and development, and thus to support the pupil's personality growth, too.
Assessment must be truthful and based on a diversity of evidence. The assessment is to address the pupil's learning and progress in the different areas of learning. Pupil assessment forms a whole, in which ongoing feedback from the teacher plays an important part. With the help of assessment, the teacher guides the pupils in becoming aware of their thinking and actions and helps them understand what they are learning. The pupil's progress, work skills, and behavior are assessed in relation to the curriculum's objectives and descriptions of good performance.
