Periodic assessment is an integral part of education process. It provides opportunity for teachers and learners to assess learning outcomes with a view to adjusting methods and improving academic achievement. It also provides the required basis for admission, placement, promotion, demotion or repetition and at the end certification of learners. If there is no form of assessment in education, the process would be marred by obscurity and it would be very difficult to classify the products of the system (Omoifo, 1998). Periodic assessment makes it possible to know the direction of students’ performance and to determine the direction of change of students’ attitude (Alutu & Alutu, 2007).
