Continuous assessment can take various forms, depending on the final objectives and competencies. As the elaborated flowchart below suggests, continuous assessment entails careful keeping of records on the pupils, continuously and systematically. It considers the termly or periodic performances of students in assignments, tests, projects, and other educational activities. It should be noted here that continuous assessment has four major characteristics: it is comprehensive, cumulative, systematic, and guidance oriented. It is comprehensive in that it assesses every aspect of the learners' activities. For instance, it assesses the learner's cognitive, affective, and psychomotor activities.
