Assesment of Scholastic Skills through Educational Testing Results
ASSET Stands for Assessment of Scholastic Skills through Educational Testing.
It is a scientifically designed, skill-based assessment test. Rather than testing rote learning, through multiple-choice questioning, it focuses on measuring how well SKILLS and CONCEPTS underlying the school syllabus have been learnt by the student. The test provides information on the strengths and weaknesses of individual students and also entire classes.
