  • questioning 
  • observation 
  • giving assistance to an individual student
  • informal classroom discussion 
2. Self - Assessment develop students' metacognitive skill (ability to monitor one's learning skills before,
     during and after a given task) and therefore develops responsibility towards their own learning . This
     can be facilitated by giving them:

  • lists of objectives to be covered 
  • checklists of facts to be known 
  • lists of desirable behaviors 
  • students' learning log to record learning, effort and enjoyment 
3.  Written Assessment assignment is a piece of work carried out without direct teacher supervision, in
     class, at home, in the library or internet cafe. They come in the form of posters, models, research

     cussion ) or structured (seminars, interviews, debates, and oral presentation)
     a. Question and Answer session in the classroom gives a quick assessment of students' understanding
         Teacher's question should encourage responses that expand or elaborate on a point rather than require          a single word response.
     b. Oral quiz may be answered individually or group
