It is important that both instruction and assessment be based on the profile dimensions of the subject. In developing assessment procedures, try to select specific objectives in such away that you will be able to assess a representative sample of the syllabus objectives. Each specific objective in the syllabus is considered a criterion to be achieved by the student. When you develop a test that consists of items based on a representative sample of the specific objectives taught, the testis referred to as a “Criterion-Referenced Test. In many cases, a teacher cannot test all the objectives taught in a term, in a year, etc. The assessment procedure you use i.e. class tests, homework, projects and examinations must be developed in such away that it will consist of a sample of the important objectives taught over a period. The examples below show the recommended examination structure for Technical Drawing. The structure consists of End of Term Examination and School Based Assessment.
