Assessment should be on an on-going basis. It should be aimed at identifying the strengths and weaknesses of the child and on how to introduce new strategies to overcome the weaknesses.
A wide range of assessment techniques can be used in a pre-primary classroom. Observation techniques, informal question-answer sessions, informal conversations and discussions are some of the techniques besides the paper-pencil activities that can be used.
Based on the assessment, remedial measures need to be taken to continually improve the achievement of the child/class. At the end of each term, the teacher along with the children should evaluate the process in terms of tasks completed, participation, what the children have learnt and what can be done to improve performance.
