"Assessments is not about you as a teacher, it is about your students" (Lopez, D. 2013)
But when classroom assessment is used in a threat such as “If you do poorly on this test, the retake will really be hard” or “This test will show us if you are really trying” or “I made this test really hard so you guys better be ready”. These statements rarely motivate student to improve or even to try harder. They represent the common mistaken belief that the threat of failure somehow promotes success in students.
I think the student would do a lot better on the assessment if the teacher can develop quality assessment and determine the purpose of the assessment. A lot of teacher mess up when they do assessment a lot of them don’t really know what the purpose of the assessment the only time teachers is concern and have knowledge is when they or doing an assessment of learning with the student this is to inform only the teacher and others outside the classroom the progress at the time of the assessment of learning.
