Why do we test students? To label them or teach them better? Labeling students is one of the most common errors of educators. If we don't want to fall into that error, then we should use those scores more useful. Marking pupils and focusing on the next examination is not the right approach for humanitarian systems. Then, what should we do? Constructivist approach claims that all activities should focus on learning. Thus, assessing students can be seen as opportunity to enhance learning. Using assessment for learning enhances students' motivation and academic success, decreases the anxiety for examinations. Especially, the countries, that use central examinations to promote students to higher education steps, should see assessment activities for a learning opportunity.
