Monthly assessment is carried out at the end of a month of learning. It measures how much a student has learned from the course. It is usually a graded test, i.e., it is marked according to a scale, set of grades or marks.

Assessment that is predominantly of summative nature will not by itself be able to yield a valid measure of the growth and development of the child. It, at best, certifies the level of achievement only at a given point of time.
