2. Continuous Process:
Evaluation is a continuous process closely related to the learning objectives. The desirable learning experiences are created in the pupil in accordance with educational objectives and the behavioural changes which occur day-to-day are recorded. On the basis of this record, the ranking of pupils is made and they are upgraded to the next higher class.
3. Social Process:
Evaluation is a social process. In this where all the aspects of personality are evaluated, it is also evaluated whether the teaching has been conducted according to the needs, ideals and norms of the society or not.
4. Descriptive Process:
Evaluation is a descriptive process. In this is given the progress which occurs in all the aspects of the pupils.
5. Cooperative process:
Evaluation is a cooperative process. The source of pupil’s promotion is the pupil himself. As he writes in his answer books, so he gets the marks. In evaluation, the necessary material is collected by seeking essential cooperation of all the sources like teacher, pupils and parents. Then his progress is evaluated.
6. Decisive Process:
Evaluation is a decisive process. After this, it is decided that—(i) whether any object or process is useful or not, (ii) to what extent the teaching is successful according to the determined educational objectives, (iii) whether the learning experiences provided to the pupils in the class are effective or not, (iv) How far the teaching objectives have been achieved. If not achieved then whether the remedial instruction should be given or the teaching strategies are to be modified.
Thus, evaluation measures the educational achievements. It also improves the teaching process.
