Abstract: Assessment is a process that measures achievement ensuring “objectively standards achieved by students …” It can be done through range of tools including written exams, coursework, practical and oral tests, etc. “Examinations … which consist only of timed written papers cannot ... assess ability to undertake practical and investigational work ...” School-based assessment (SBA) can be used to measure processes and skills acquired through a programme of work and cannot ‘fit’ in a written paper. SBA was included in exams to enhance the validity of the assessment process.
