The aim of this study was to assessing and implementing of continuous assessment to enhance academic performance of 2nd year Animal and Range Sciences department students in Wolaita sodo university; and to take action (train) to raise the academic performance to a desirable state. For the purpose of surveying the students' level of performance towards continuous assessment, a 12-item questionnaire (The Initial Questionnaire) on a Likert scale was given to all the 40 Animal and Range Sciences year II students. Accordingly, the overall percentage of poor performance answers was 54.6%, which implies that more than half of the students are leveled poor in their performance and attitude (awareness) towards continuous assessment. After all the actions (training , focus group discussion and implementation of continuous assessments), for the purpose of surveying the changes on the students' level of performance towards continuous assessment, a 12-item questionnaire (exactly the same as the Initial Questionnaire) on a Likert scale was given again to all the 40 Animal and Range Sciences year II students. Accordingly, the overall percentage of good performance answers was 85%, which implies that majority of the students (34 out of 40) are leveled high (preferably desirable) in their performance and attitude towards continuous assessment after the intervention.
