Abstract: Students' achievement might not be fully measured through a single or a couple of written tests (examinations). Various types of assessment methods should be in place. Alternative ways of assessing students take into account variation in students' needs, interests and learning styles (Shaaban, 2001). The objective of this study is to evaluate the practices of continuous assessment at St. Mary's University College. To this end, data were collected through questionnaire, document analysis and interview. The results of the study showed that teachers appeared to have good perceptions about CA but they did not use various tools of CA; instead they relied on the traditional modes of measuring students i.e., testing. Conclusions were drawn on the basis of the results obtained.
