Effective assessments provide a window through which educators can gain visibility into their students’ learning gaps - they can get to know in which topics they are struggling, and why? and then use this insight to provide their students with constructive suggestions to improve their learning, or if necessary re-orient their way of teaching.While providing feedback to students based on their performance in assessments is essential for improving learning outcomes, it is also equally essential to design effective assessments,
Assessments can provide students feedback on their strengths and weaknesses - which in turn can influence their learning behaviour. It has been confirmed that the majority of students regard assessment as the most important aspect of a course, and consequently, they use it to guide and frame their learning.Assessments also provide the teaching faculty feedback and insights on their students’ depth of learning and their breadth of learning. This can help them reorient their teaching methods if needed, to better the learning outcomes.

Teachers have remained trapped in outdated curriculum, and teaching methodologies have not been able to generate curiosity (to learn) in the minds of the learners.
