In schools (as per SCERT sources) as a part of CCE for Continious evaluation three types of assessment are being followed. They are

1. Learning Process assessment
2. Portfolio Assessment
3. Unit based assessment

They are using Achievement test mainly for Term End Evaluation only.

However Achievement test design and execution is an important part of B.Ed course even though school system is demanding not such importance for it. So it is important for a student teacher and teacher educator to be familiar about Achievement test Designing and Execution. Various types of Achievement tests design are being used in B.Ed. colleges. Some of them are

1) Design based on Blooms taxonomy
2) Design based on domains proposed by NCERT
3) Design based on Revised Blooms taxonomy
4) Design based on Mental process/Thinking skills.(Derived from RBT)

The Achievement test design mentioned here is based on RBT.








Constructivistic improvement in this design is to be always encouraged and welcomed. Teacher Educators can improve this design incorporating the table of mental process/thinking skills along with the blueprint.
