We can hardly imagine the learning process without assessment of students’ achievements. Assessment allows educators to see how successfully students perform during their studies. Evaluation is the basis of the educational process. It helps educators find out if students can reach the goals set up by the teachers and curriculum. Basically, assessment is necessary for students also, as it shows how efficiently they work during their classes or how successfully they complete the assignments. Besides, they can see whether or not they should devote some more time for studying.
Constant changes in the educational system and other areas related to education always cause discussions around this topic. It is obvious, that changes turn positive only if they lead to development and improvement in the educational environment while other changes don’t bring any benefit. That’s why, when speaking about teaching methods, we can hear a lot of critical comments about variations in types of teaching. Nevertheless, we may also hear some supporting arguments. So, what arguments seem to be stronger – about traditional or innovative methods of teaching?
