Sai Shri Ramamurthy
This paper discusses about the action research done on the types of assessments in learning Biology by the senior secondary students (Pre University College) in a rural district near Bangalore. As there are different types of learners and not all the students learn in the same pace, so one size fits all approach doesn’t work to assess learning. During the pre test period all the students were given the same type of standardized assessments and the class average was 33%. The strength of the class was 15 students,the attention span of the students were carefully studied, their interests was also learnt by the teacher after which she devised personalized assessments for the betterment of the performance of the students in learning Biology. When the post test scores were studied, the class average was 86%.
