Define the concepts of 'evaluation', 'measurement' and 'assessment' And also explain the differences among them with examples

The concept of educational evaluation is not a discovery of the present age. Evaluation is a reality of our daily life. Every individual evaluates him/herself and the environment around his/her. The role of evaluation is the struggle for life is very significant. It played a remarkable role in the development of human culture and civilization. Now, let us discuss the concepts of evaluation, measurement and assessment in detail :-

Evaluation :- 

Literally, evaluation means to judge or calculate the amount or importance of something. To me, evaluation is the activity of viewing things from a variety of angles for the acquisition of specific aims. But in the field of education and. instruction, evaluation is a formal process which aims at discovering the facts that the students have mastered by the instruction of particular content and skills.
• Evaluation is such an activity in which an attempt is made to see to what an extent the predetermined objectives have been acquired for which the instructional process was carried out.
• Evaluation is a formal procedure which attempts to know the extent of expected behavioral changes in the students achieved.

Measurement :- 

Measurement is one of the aspects of evaluation. It plays an important role in evaluating the educational performance of the students. It is directly concerned with the evaluation.
• Measurement refers to the act of finding dimensions of any object and the quantity found by such an act.
• Measurement refers to th process by which one attempts to measure the quantity of learning and teaching using various formal techniques.
• Measurement is an activity in which a thing is compared to a particular standard so as to know its present range and quantity.
• Measurement is a procedure which aims at knowing the degree of a particular trait in an individual.

Assessment :- 

Literally, assessment means to decide the value of a particular thing. But in the field of education and learning, assessment is an activity in which a teacher keeps watches the comprehension, readiness, interest, involvement and attention of the students in the instructional process so as to maintain appropriate instructional environment in the classroom.
• Assessment is an outlook under which a teacher guards the factors that affect the instructional process.
