"Assessment is like a yardstick which measures teacher and students' performances." An assessment plays vital role in educational process. It is also helpful for policy makers, stakeholders and educationists for proper implementation of curriculum under education system. Over past two decades more emphasis is given on assessing learners' performances and emerged as an essential step, too. The present paper highlights the perception of trainees towards assessment. In this regard the researcher reviewed previous studies and identified certain gaps and hence decided to take up the study. In order to achieve this, the following objectives were framed to find out the effects of assessment for or of learning on students' outcome; to articulate the significance of formative assessment; to identify the difference between male and female opinion towards assessment. Hypotheses were framed followed by objectives. To conduct the current study the researcher has used self prepared questionnaire to collect data. Data was analysed through statistical tools systematically by using SPSS software version 20. The findings of the study revealed that there is no significant difference between the opinion of male and female. Therefore changes and development in the assessment are required, giving emphasis on methodologies of teaching with an increasing greater focus on students' active participation.
