Low stake assessment

DEFINITION: Assessments that are meant to verify how well the education system (or school system) is doing. Low-stakes assessments have no direct consequences on test takers. For example, regardless of their scores, students will not be held in a grade, or be denied access to higher levels of schooling, or be streamed into more academic and less academic program.
