,Good  evening everyone.

Good evening Mr. Odetola

Assessment is simply the act of examining anything.

We can assess the mental health of danfo drivers; we can assess how well our leaders listen to the people; we can assess the sincerity of the National Assembly.

Once we’re examining, we’re assessing.

Question: which modes of assessment do you deploy the most, and why?


Hi. I use short  quizzes, written and oral

I think the best form is formative

Plenary too is a good form of assessment

Formative..  Since l’m in the education sector.And summative of course.

Impromptu test is also a way of assessing

Mrs Ade Fakoya in her response slade that 

There are four basic types:

*Assessment _for_ learning* (Formative Assessment)

*Assessment _of_ learning* (Summative Assessment)

*Assessment _as_ learning*

*Diagnostic Assessment*

Assessment is integral to the learning process; it facilitates students’ learning, and improves instruction.

Assessment _for_ learning* is on-going assessment that allows teachers to monitor students during every lesson, and modify our teaching based on what the student needs to be successful.


*Will you recommend it for pre school

This assessment provides students with the timely, specific feedback which they need in order to make adjustments to their learning.

Is this clear enough?

In addition, it helps the teacher know where to stress further while teaching is going on based on students feedback.

Kk thanks it’s quite insightful

In addition, formative assessment gives an insight on what topic will be discussed during teaching an d learning procedd

How can one use them for assessment

A good teacher will always want to impact on pupils whether school owners pay well or not.her joy abound when she sees her products

Formative assessment is the one done while teaching is on. Also called assessment for learning. It occurs through out the learning process. With the aim of helping you assess the class level of understanding as regards the topic under discussion. It is interractive.

Mrs Ade Fakoya in her response slade that 

Assessment is integral to the learning process; it facilitates students’ learning, and improves instruction.

*Assessment _of_ Learning* a.k.a. ~Summative Assessment~ let’s the teacher, student, and their parents know how well each student has completed the learning tasks and activities.

It provides information about student achievement, and even though it provides useful reporting information, it often has little effect on learning.

So, while *FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT* assists teachers and students to improve learning, *SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT* is information for those not directly involved in daily teaching & learning e.g. School Admins., Parents, School Board, Inspectorate, etc.

All types of assessment are useful for different purposes, and can be used at any level – EYFS, Primary, Secondary, Post-Secondary, etc.


Hello Ade. I am concerned about questioning techniques in assessment

Yes Mrs. A. That’s the focus of this S.E.A.T.

We all need to be on the same page concerning what assessment is, its uses and purposes, and then we dive deep into the items proper.

The 3rd, *Assessment _as_ Learning*, develops and supports students’ metacognition skills. This form of assessment is crucial in helping students become lifelong learners.

As students engage in peer- and self-assessment, they learn to make sense of information, relate it to prior knowledge, and use it for new learning.

Students develop a sense of ownership and efficacy when they use the feedback got to make adjustments, improvements, and changes to what they understand.

Finally, we have *DIAGNOSTIC ASSESSMENT* which is a show-what-you-know format. It helps educators in the planning and preparation of effective interventions or next steps.


In addition, Diagnostic assessment is a pre assessment that allows a teacher to determine learners individual strength, weaknesses, knowledge and skills. It is basically used to find out individual learners difficulties and challenges thereby guiding the teacher in lesson planning. It can be applied when a new child is enrolled in your class or for newly transfered learners. Also at the beginning of a session when a teacher inherit new class. Its a perfect form of assessment for SEN learners

Now, I’d like us to move swiftly to the focal point for today – *test construction*

Well designed tests are important for assessing students’ understanding of content, and their level of competence in applying what they are learning.

There are:
1. *Multiple Choice items*
2. *Essay items*
3. *Discrete items*
4. *Cloze items*

In setting/constructing/designing test items, we need to run the whole gamut of Bloom’s Taxonomy.

These items will assist educators in composing questions on different levels of thinking – from the lower to the higher levels of cognition.

The items will also ensure that the tests are valid indicators of achievement.

These items will assist educators in composing questions on different levels of thinking – from the lower to the higher levels of cognition.

The items will also ensure that the tests are valid indicators of achievement.

In times past, we’ve used the acronym KCAASE, where *K* stands for Knowledge,
*C* – Comprehension
*A* – Application
*A* – Analysis
*S* – Synthesis
*E* – Evaluation

Recently, that has been tweaked.

*R* – Remembering
*U* – Understanding
*A* – Applying
*A* – Analysing
*E* – Evaluating
*C* – Creating

I’ll take each one with example questions.

1. Tests must cover subject content for the assessment period.

2. Learning objectives must match test items.

3. Ideally, each item, or section should have the attainable score visible.

4. Vary question types.

5. Clarity! Clarity!! Clarity!!!

In any one test or exam, students can encounter:

True/False Questions
Multiple Choice Questions
Short Answer Questions
Essay Questions
Cloze Questions

They can colour, circle, fill a crossword, draw, match using a ruler, cut-and-stick, affix cutouts…
There’s a plethora of Summative Assessment activities which we can employ to make learning and even assessment productive, exciting, and engaging.

Now, on a final note, I’d like to speak freely from one practitioner to another.

Let us improve ourselves.
Remove the log in your own eye, and even when you can see clearly, ignore the speck in another’s.

Teachers only grow when we collaborate, humble ourselves and learn.

I’ve had to cringe sometime when reading some grammatical structure online.

Teachers, educators, co-labourers in the vineyard, when we know better, we do better!!!

Yes we can!

On this note, I’d like to bow out.

The next 13 minutes will be for any pertinent question.

Thank you for your time.

Ade Fakoya

Questions and contributions 

Mrs Fakoya thanks one more time. Teachers should stop making excuses for not delivering. Even when in a tricycle you still teacher people even though no one is going to pay for that.we all need to upgrade to meet the present

So u will be happy after transporting yourself  will pay psp due nepa bill and other due and you are not pay for about two three months and the owner does not show remorse for such actions please help me how will such workers be happy pleaseeeee tell me

Even when the pupils are paying

Where is the place of etiquette

Where is The entrepreneur

Most of the pupils can not practice anything even when they come out of school

But the money too is also a mitigating factor

Thank you MA, please how can one address the issue of class  positioning and  parents clamour for double promotion

I worked in a school 2 years back, up till nw they ve not called me back to pay almost 60k they owe me

The only thing is that how many have this concerned well the name a person will name the child is in the parents minds

From Mrs Ade Fakoya 

You don’t address it.
What does your school policy say? As a teacher, you follow school policy.

Dear Opeyemi,

How have your questions helped anyone?
How have they bettered your craft? Your career?

You have a sphere of influence in your classroom; shine there.

You’re a teacher! Teach! Teach when you play; teach when you talk; teach when you write!!!

Your name…why have you spelt it wrongly?
Does that teach anything?
Is it of any value?

I am a teacher; I am a psychologist; I am a learner!

You have knowledge – use it!
You have higher order thinking skills – hone them!

Don’t just sit and complain!
Do something! Anything!

Just do it!

I know you’re wondering –
“Why is she so harsh?”
“Have I said anything untrue?”

No you haven’t, but you’re falling into that trap of complaining.

I don’t know you, but I love you because you’re a teacher.

Let’s go! Together we win!
