Abstract

This study was on the investigation of the impact of students’ assessment on the quality of education. The case study was Toangoma ward secondary schools in Temeke district Dar es Salaam. The researcher wanted to examine the types of assessment used in secondary schools, student’s perception on assessment as well as the effects of assessment on quality of education. Literature review was done on the theories and educational policy in Tanzania. Data collection was done through question and observation as well as documentary review from NECTA records. The findings indicate that majority teachers in secondary schools use three types of assessment which are diagnostic, formative and summative. Also the findings show that students understand why they are assessed. Not only that but also the impact of assessment on education is revealed.
