A first- person account of two teachers— one who labelled a child as ‘not capable’ and another, who probed deeper to find out what was wrong with the child. It is your guess as to which teacher won the confidence of the child.

Assessments are closely related to observation. It is imperative for each teacher that along with her other skills, she learns to train her eye so that she has the practiced skill of a doctor. This observation is kept purely scientific. It is also known as phenomenological observation where one observes facts without mixing it up with opinion, feelings, previous knowledge, concepts etc.
