  1. Following the analysis of formative and summative assessment, this has been proven that the former evaluation’s advantages is noticeably prominent. This is highly recommended by many educationists in every society in order to rise students’ competency during the courses or even in their later life. It is therefore expected that continuous assessment will be likely to encourage students to recognise their own hidden talent.

  2. On the other hand, the requirement of having final examination which is a kind of summative evaluation could not be denied. At the end of each instructional period, both students and teachers need to gain some information about the attainment of knowledge.They need to assess whether the whole course training would be influential enough to meet their stated goals. From this point of view, final examination is an impressive tool in evaluation.

    • So expressive and smooth! Thank you.
      Line 3: It’s better to write in this way: … They need to assess whether the whole course training HAS BEEN …, because it refers to your previous sentence (at the end of each instructional period).
      Line 3: Consider a space between the 2 words (knowledge. They…)

  3. Moreover, examinations can be unfair in several ways. For example, a candidate’s entire career depends upon what he or she does on a certain day and hour of an exam. If the candidate is in poor condition, or if he or she has had some emotional trauma, these factors could have a negative effect on the student’s exam results. Furthermore, some students do not perform well under pressure and require more time to reach useful conclusions. Even though they may have studied diligently and know the subject matter thoroughly, their performance does not reflect their ability.

  4. To shore up the idea that continuous evaluation is better than focusing on final examinations, it is implausible to judge students as per only one examination in the whole semester. Because psychologically speaking, many reasons could bring about a situation in which students are at their best. For instance, imagine a pupil who gets a cold on the examination day and as a result, they cannot do their best. In so doing, the accuracy of the assessment gets on the verge of doubt. Hence, final examinations are not necessarily a true measure of a student’s abilities.

  5. Today, one of the challenges facing schools is growing diversity of the students and their needs. Therefore, the main purpose of testing is to assess student proficiency and their learnings. For this purpose, on the one hand some scholars believe that final examinations are the best way to evaluate the student`s knowledge of the subject, on the other hand, some others prefer to examine students continuously over the duration of their education. In what follows we investigate both ways.
