National Council for Curriculum and Assessment


Assessment is the process of generating, gathering, recording, interpreting, using and reporting evidence of learning in individuals, groups or systems, which relies upon a number of instruments and methods. Educational assessment provides information about progress in learning. Building on the experiences of teachers, principals, parents and children of the Primary School Curriculum, the NCCA provides a range of supports to schools in using assessment as part of daily classroom practice.
