Abstract

This chapter describes the criteria for selection of assessment techniques and methods. Benjamin Bloom et al classified all educational objectives into three namely, cognitive, affective and psychomotor domains. Cognitive domain involves remembering previously learnt matter. Affective domain relates to interests, appreciation, attitudes and values. Psychomotor domain deals with motor and manipulative skills. The focus of assessment is on these three domains of educational objectives. However, researches have shown that the emphasis has been on the cognitive than the others. This may be because of the difficulty associated with writing of objectives in the other areas.
